EPA headquarters secure after ‘unfounded’ report of gunshots

WASHINGTON – A major police response was seen at the Environmental Protection Agency headquarters in Washington D.C. Wednesday afternoon after there were reports of gunshots.

Police did not find any sign of a shooting, officials said.

Federal Protective Services determined that reports of gunshots at the building “were unfounded,” the EPA said on Twitter. “There were no injuries and the building is secure.”

Several pictures and videos were posted on social media Wednesday around 2:20 p.m. showing law enforcement officers outside of the EPA building located at 1200 Pennsylvania Ave, N.W. in D.C.

A woman posted video on Twitter showing an officer running near the building. Alexis Fabbri claimed that there was a possible “active shooter” incident happening at the government building.
