WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Capitol was briefly placed on lockdown on Tuesday after police received a call about a man with a gun several blocks away, police said.

Police stopped the man near the Capitol, a Washington police spokesman said. There were no shots figured during the incident, a separate representative of the Washington police said.
