The American media reported a shooting incident in the US Senate building on Wednesday evening. After investigation the US Police said all Senate buildings were cleared and no shooter found.

Iran PressAmerica: The Senate went into lockdown Wednesday afternoon as US Capitol Police investigated reports of an active shooter in the Russell office building, putting Capitol Hill on edge more than two years after the January 6, 2021, attack.

Capitol Police Chief Thomas Manger said police had responded around 2:30 p.m. to reports of an active shooter wearing body armor in the Hart Senate Office Building.

Lawmakers are not in Washington due to the August recess, but aides were working in the buildings.

More than 200 officers responded “within seconds,” clearing all three buildings, Hart, Russell and Dirksen floor-by-floor.

The tense afternoon comes as security in Washington begins to ramp up ahead of former President Donald Trump’s expected appearance on Thursday in a federal courthouse situated several blocks from the US Capitol. Trump was indicted Tuesday on criminal charges by a federal grand jury in special counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into efforts to overturn the 2020 election leading up to the January 6 attack on the US Capitol. 219
