    Shots Fired on National Mall Near White House, 3 People Taken Into Custody

    Published on

    Early on Friday morning, the National Mall in Washington, D.C., was closed due to gunfire.

    According to WRC-TV, two adults, an armed adolescent, and other people were detained following the shootings.

    The Washington Monument and the Ellipse, south of the White House, are divided by the 1600 block of Constitution Avenue, where the arrests were made.

    Around 1:15 a.m., the Secret Service, U.S. Park Police, and D.C. police officers responded to reports of gunfire.

    No one was hurt, although it appears that three empty automobiles were hit by gunshots.

    The gunfire didn’t put any protected sites in danger, according to Secret Service agents.

    According to Fox News, D.C. police said that the incident involved many shooters and that at least two pistols had been found.

    Constitution Avenue was blocked off, but it eventually reopened before 9 a.m.

    Uncertainty remained over the shooting’s circumstances.

    It’s unclear whether the shooting has led to criminal charges against the people who were arrested.

    In the past, the Secret Service has responded to shootings in the vicinity of the White House.

    After an agency-related shooting in August 2020, a Secret Service agent led the then-President Donald Trump out of the White House briefing room.

    According to The Washington Post, the Secret Service in that incident shot a guy who was behaving aggressively outside the White House barrier.

    There is a significant issue with gun violence in the capital city.

    According to Capital News Service, 2021 witnessed 226 killings in Washington, D.C., the most in 18 years.

    According to reports, city officials have turned to inmates in a district jail for help on the issue.
