Yet another “active shooter” situation in Washington, D.C., this time right in the heart of the nation’s capital. The reports are sketchy right now, but apparently there was gunfire reported near the Hart Senate Office Building. The situation is ongoing and there is a “shelter in place” order, including the Capitol Building.
No doubt this latest event will come right on time for President Obama to make an impassioned plea to get what he wants from Congress.
As more information comes through, we will continue our analysis of this latest shooting event and how it relates to the other recent shootings and if there is any reason to think that there might be more to the story than what we are being told by authorities.
EDIT: New information indicates that the shooting incident was a result of a police car chase that ended up in front of the Senate Building. Police fired on the suspects after one got out of the car. Still waiting for more information. However, there are instant questions with this information coming to light. For example, if this were true, why was most of Capitol Hill locked down? If the incident resulted from the end of the car chase, then police must have known the incident was over at that point. Also, there has been a constant line of emergency vehicles going to the area that is not at all consistent with the story we are being told. More information as it becomes available.
