DC Swat Team; Photo - Roll Call

The U.S. House of Representatives Canon House Building was evcacuated when Capitol Hill security noticed the outline of a gun on the X-ray machine's monitors. SWAT teams were brought into to secure the area as well as find two suspects, a man and a woman. A little less than two hours later, Representative John Shimkus of Illinois called the police to tell them that the suspects they were looking for were two female staffers with Halloween costumes that included toy guns; SWAT teams were "disgusted." Capitol Hill Police Chief Gainer said, "I don't think anybody was trying to trick anybody. I think it was just an unusual set of Halloween circumstances that unfolded on us." Yes, an ill-planned Mischief Night during the day at the Capitol.
