No link to follow yet, my crawler just sent me an alert about a tweet from DC Metropolitan PD.

Multiple agencies are on scene at Union Station. Authorities asking people to avoid the area. Only thing that's come out so far is that it is NOT an active shooter. There are reports of gunfire earlier, and pictures of people both walking and running out of the station.

Several local media outlets are en route.

Will post a link as soon as I find one.

WTOP is reporting a shooting and a stabbing. U.S. Capitol is advising people to stay away as well now.

Although Union Station is wide open to the public, it's used heavily by government employees in addition to Amtrak riders and local residents. I'll keep an eye on it to see what develops and who's involved.

I've always thought that if a person is stupid enough to
pull a knife on a person with a firearm? The person brandishing
the knife gets shot. Hence as the saying goes, "Never bring a
knife to a gunfight". Possible suicide by rent a cop?
