The U.S. Capitol was briefly placed on lockdown on Tuesday, July 12, after police received a call about a man with a gun several blocks away, police said.

Police stopped the man near the Capitol, a Washington police spokesman said.

There were no shots figured during the incident, a separate representative of the Washington police said.

This comes four days after a gunman identified as Micah Xavier killed five police officers in Dallas, Texas, United. The shooter was later killed by a police bomb squad robot.
