Per Joe Johns/MSNBC: There is a consideration of closing/evacuating the Cannon building and doing a room-to-room search.

It's one of the buildings that houses the offices of our congressmen and women.

The detector spotted the gun in the backpack, at which point the suspect grabbed the backpack and ran from security.

SWAT team combing the building now.

Don't you really mean "It's one of the buildings that houses the offices of the illegal aliens' congressmen and women."

This is probably completely irrelevent, but in the wee hours last night there were helicopters flying incessantly in the Capitol Hill area.

And no, I don't know if they were black. ;-)

But they were up there doing something, no joke.
