? A U.S. Capitol Police source says there is an 'unauthorized aircraft' near Washington. Air traffic control lost contact with it, said the source (who doesn't know what kind of plane it is). The White House is on "shelter in place" lockdown right now. Same at the U.S. Capitol. https://t.co/zfloT2WZVc
