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.

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.
