All Clear Issued at Rayburn House Office Building
An "all clear" has been issued at Rayburn. People are now allowed to leave the building. Oh, and if being trapped in your office made you hungry, sorry -- the cafeteria is now closing.
So what caused this whole ruckus? According to CNN, the "suspected sounds of gunshots heard in a House office building were made by a mechanic using a pneumatic hammer on an elevator."
