Police arrested Christopher Wade Briggs on Tuesday afternoon after the Secret Service saw him allegedly take a semiautomatic .45-caliber handgun from a backpack and attach it to his belt.
“I was only going to fire a couple of shots if no one confronted me,” Briggs said according to court documents.
The gun was loaded with 13 rounds in the magazine and one in the chamber, according to NBC.
