Capitol Police shot a man on Monday after he pulled what appeared to be a weapon at a U.S. Capitol checkpoint. The suspect was taken to a local hospital and a female bystander sustained non-life-threatening injuries. The U.S. Capitol was on lockdown for about an hour and the White House also was briefly locked down.
