Gunman at U.S. Capitol was known to police, officials say | 28 March 2016 | An armed man who was shot Monday trying to enter the U.S. Capitol was known to police and had previously disrupted a session of Congress, according to local and federal law enforcement officials. Larry Dawson of Tennessee was stopped by Capitol Police after he set off a metal detector trying to enter the Capitol Visitor Center, a federal official said. After an argument, Dawson drew a weapon and pointed it at officers, said the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. At least one officer opened fire, shooting the suspect, said Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa. A weapon was recovered at the scene, he added. Dawson was taken to a hospital for treatment. A female bystander, age 35 to 45, was hospitalized with what Verderosa called minor injuries from the incident.
