WASHINGTON, D.C. (KTNV) — Capitol police are investigating after a Congressman allegedly attempted to bring a gun onto the House floor.
Officials say GOP Representative Andy Harris of Maryland set off a metal detector outside the House floor yesterday.
He was carrying a concealed weapon.
Harris was sent away but later returned and went through the metal detector with no issue.
His office did not immediately return a request for comment.
The metal detectors were installed last week after the riots at the Capitol building.
