‘Concerning 911 call’ leads to Capitol Hill evacuation on Trump arraignment eve

US Capitol Police evacuated the Senate office building in Washington, DC, Wednesday after receiving reports of a possible active shooter.

“Our officers are searching in and around the Senate Office Buildings in response to a concerning 911 call,” the department tweeted at 2:45 p.m.

Police asked everyone inside to shelter in place, although reports of gunshots were not confirmed.

The city’s Metro Police Department said the active shooter report “appears to be a bad call” and no shooter was located and there were no injuries, according to Politico.

The office building is just a few blocks from the courthouse where former President Donald Trump is scheduled to appear tomorrow in his latest federal indictment.
