(Newser) – A man armed with a rifle shot a security guard today at Washington’s National Holocaust Museum, WTOP-AM reports. Police say two other guards fired back at the alleged shooter, striking him. A third person was injured by flying glass at the tourist attraction, which typically has high security. Guard and suspect have been taken to the hospital with “serious” gunshot wounds, an official tells the Post.
