U.S. Capitol Briefly Evacuated After Probable Threat But Actually…

From an AP story by Michael Balsamo and Zeke Miller headlined “Parachute demo at Nats Park causes brief Capitol evacuation”:

The U.S. Capitol was briefly evacuated Wednesday evening after police identified an aircraft that they said posed “a probable threat” — but the plane was actually carrying members of the U.S. Army Golden Knights, who then parachuted into Nationals Park for a pregame demonstration.

The alert from the U.S. Capitol Police sent congressional staffers fleeing from the Capitol and legislative building around 6:30 p.m.
