A man armed with a “long gun” entered the Holocaust Museum this afternoon and fired at a security guard, and then was shot by two other security guards, according to the United States Park Police.
In a press briefing that aired on Fox News Channel, Sergeant David Schlosser of the U.S. Park Police said that both the gunman and the guard who was shot were rushed to George Washington University Hospital. The shooting occured at about 10 minutes to 1 p.m.
Schlosser said there was no evidence of another shooter in the building, but they have shut down the museum and are searching just to be sure.
UPDATE: Shooting suspect identified as white supremacist James Von Brunn, born in 1920 (so either 88 or 89 years-old).
