A man was escorted away in handcuffs by police after a disturbance caused panic among attendees of the March For Our Lives gun reform rally on the National Mall in Washington on Saturday, June 11.
Local media reported a man shouted “I am the gun” into the crowd near the stage and threw an unidentified object during a moment of silence for victims of gun violence.
Members of the crowd began to run, before a speaker urged calm, saying, “Do not run. There is no issue here,” into a microphone, local media reported.
The event resumed as scheduled following the incident. Credit: @amayarearden via Storyful
