|Man Presses Blackberry Amidst Shootings In Capitol Hill by Rapmaestro(m): 11:28pm On Oct 04, 2013|
With sirens blaring and people scrambling for safety all around him, an unidentified man in a suit and tie seems to be buried in his BlackBerry as he strolls by a Capitol Hill Police officer taking position with an assault rifle.
“That’s D.C., right? People are so wrapped up in that little device in their hands that nothing else matters,” said Doug Mills, a New York Times photographer who captured the surreal moment during Thursday’s lockdown at the U.S. Capitol.
Mills took the photo from a third-floor window of the Senate building where doors were being locked because a dramatic car chase and shooting were unfolding on the streets outside.
“There were guys running all around with their guns,” Mills told Yahoo News.
So was the man using his phone to tweet, text or perhaps call family to say he’s OK? Mills, who believes the man is a political staffer, admits he doesn’t know for sure. But he says the man couldn’t have been totally unaware
