“9th St., between Pennsylvania and Constitution completely caution taped off in front of the DoJ due to a shooting this morning.
I asked one of the security guards. All I heard was that is was a shooting, but NOT an active shooter situation. There was a lady walking around in a “forensics” vest taking pictures of evidence.”
