Police in Washington DC say they are investigating after the sound of gunfire was heard in a House of Representatives office building.
The US Capitol has been sealed off and people in the building have been told not to move.
The apparent shots were heard at the garage level of the Rayburn building, which houses offices of members of the US House of Representatives.
No casualties have been reported, and police are searching the area.
The House of Representatives is not in session, but a committee hearing was going on at the time of the incident.
either the rent-a-cops got bored and had a bit of target practice, or the Republican coup attemp didnt know all the Dems were on holiday and shot up thier empty offices.

How can they tell the difference?

To feed the conspiracy:

If only one person phoned in the report, and that number of armed men flooded the area, what happens if a report gets called in once a week? Terrorism clearly works, The American seat of power was afraid today. How often do hoaxes have to happen before the response is minimal?

Two women ran outside screaming that a gunmen was on the loose (who they never apparently saw)

Cue lots of cops in SWAT gear swarming all over the place.

and how many times have the tube trains been canceled and stations empted over the last two decades before the real terror attacks happened?
i remember having to walk a long way home a few times when i was living in london 8-10 years ago because of hoaxes.

Far more than they are now. There are bomb threats phoned in all over the US on a daily basis and have been for many years. The vast majority are taken quite seriously. This sort of thing has become a fact of life and the concerned agencies have incorporated responses into their operations. That would include just the scenario you are positing as well.

The 2nd Amendment of the Bill of Rights: "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the Right of the people to Keep and Bear Arms and workmen's tools including nail guns shall not be infringed."

I think it needs another amendment.
