A man shot and killed himself outside the U.S. Capitol Building on Saturday. NBC News reports that the man died on the West Front of the Capitol Building and a suspicious package found nearby that led to a lockdown of the building was his suitcase. “There are no indications at this point of terrorism,” said a federal official. ABC News hears word the man had a sign taped to his hand.
The U.S. Capitol police later also confirmed the shooting was a suicide. “Confirmed: self-inflicted gunshot by neutralized subject,” Capitol police spokeswoman Kimberly Schneider said, according to CNN. “Multiple law enforcement/emergency services have responded in support of the incident.”
