A gunman was shot by Capitol Police Monday afternoon and later taken into custody, officials said, after drawing a weapon on officers at the tourist-heavy U.S. Capitol Visitor Center – an incident that sent the Capitol complex and the White House into lockdown.


Dawson, 56, of Antioch, Tenn., was arrested in October following an outburst in the House chamber, and a stay-away order was issued, officials told Fox News.
