In what Capitol Police are calling an “incident,” an armed man was arrested this morning outside Senate offices. According to sources, the man brandished a gun at the barricade at 1st Street and Constitution Avenue NE before officers arrested him. He is currently in custody, and the weapon has been recovered. The Capitol was on lockdown for 10 to 15 minutes. No one was hurt.
