US Capitol gunman wasn't connected to terrorism – police

WASHINGTON, March 28 (KUNA) — A man who entered the Capitol Visitor Center on Monday with a firearm was not motivated by terrorism, Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa indicated.
“Based on initial investigation we believe this is an act of a single person, this is no more than a criminal act,” said Verderoa to reporters.
The man drew his weapon upon entering the visitor center and pointed it at officers who then shot him and took him in to custody. The suspect is currently in the hospital awaiting treatment.
An “uninvolved” female bystander also suffered minor injuries, Verderosa said.
The suspect is reportedly linked to be Dawson Larry Russell of Tennessee who in October disrupted a proceeding in the House of Representatives and shouted that he was a prophet of God, according to MSNBC.
The lockdown on the Capitol grounds has now been lifted. (pickup previous)
