Terrified Boomer politico triggers panic with "erroneous report"

"What turned out to be an erroneous report of gunfire in a parking garage led the police to lock down an office building on Capitol Hill for five hours Friday as machine-gun-toting officers went room to room, looking for intruders and escorting lawmakers, lobbyists and visitors out, many with their hands on their heads.

"...The report originated with Rep. Jim Saxton, R-N.J., his press secretary said. Saxton heard what he thought were gunshots and had a member of his staff call Capitol Police, said spokesman Greg Keeley."

UPDATE: Saxton thought "pneumatic hammer" was 9mm

"[Saxton]said he heard what he 'thought sounded like a 9mm handgun' when he stepped out of an elevator in the parking garage of the Rayburn building yesterday morning...[Saxton] said in an interview last night from New Jersey that he later learned that the sounds 'came from a pneumatic hammer.'"
