The gunman

Christopher Briggs clipped the semi-automatic .45 calibre handgun onto his belt: thirteen rounds in the magazine and one in the chamber. He had a couple more magazines loaded with hollow-point ammunition and two hunting knives with serrated edges in his rucksack. He moved quickly between the crowd leaving the U.S. Secret Service police booth behind him and headed for the White House, keeping his head down and his hands in his Jeans’ pockets. Now he was thinking he should have worn that white shirt to conceal the .45. Attract less attention. But then that would’ve be too easy.
