Shots fired outside capitol

October 3, 2013

The U.S. Capitol was in lockdown on Thursday after gunshots were fired

outside the building, injuring several people including a law

enforcement officer, a Senate aide and a Capitol police officer said.

The U.S. House of Representatives and Senate were in session when the

gunshots were heard. The U.S. government was partially shut down this

week when lawmakers failed to agree on a budget.  (Reuters)
