Today at 12:50 there was a shooting at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC.
Emergency vehicles have converged on the scene near the National Mall
The shooting occurred as the suspect James von Brunn, entered the building. Von Brunn is an 88-year-old white supremacist from Maryland.
Sgt. David Schlosser, a spokesman for U.S. Park Police, told reporters that a man armed with a "long gun" entered the museum at 12:50 p.m. and fired at a security officer, and both were wounded in the exchange of gunfire."
My understanding is that two other security officers at the museum returned gunfire at the man that had entered the museum. Schlosser also reported that he didn't know exactly what kind of firearm the man had and whether the shooting was before or after he passed through a metal detector.
He said the security guard that was initially shot and the gunman have been transported to George Washington University Hospital and he didn't know their conditions.
CNN is reporting that 3 victims were injuried, two by the shootings and one by breaking glass.
Twitter is reporting that 1 victim has just died ( I do not know how to link to the twiter as it came on my phone.)
