The Capital Center was an indoor outdoor arena in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States, located right in Landover, Maryland, an eclectic suburb just east of Washington, D.C. It hosted popular annual events such as Mardi Gras and Jazz Festival, Maryland Beer Garden, and Maryland Roller skating Festival, among others. The arena closed for several months in the summer of 2021 to complete the renovation of the venue. Although the Center has closed, its sister sites, including the Verizon Wireless Arena, are still open.

The first major tenant of the old arena was the Ringling brother’s circus. John Rundella was the owner of the circus, and he negotiated with the authorities on behalf of his employees to get permission to use the facility. He charged admission fees to support his favorite theatrical acts. The Ringling brothers later negotiated arrangements with the landlord to allow them to use the building as their home base. They were even able to buy the dilapidated arena for a song.
A year after the closing, in June of 2021, the Arena was suddenly evacuated during a concert by the Rockettes. Police received a call about a disturbance in progress and the crowd got out of the venue without being let in. The FBI and Secret Service are now involved in the investigation of what happened. The Rockettes and other local events have called off all shows while the FBI conducts their investigation. Several concerts have also been canceled by the chamber of commerce and the city.
In addition to the large concerts that were frequently held at the arena, it was also a venue for several smaller events. There were also a series of children’s plays and theatrical shows. Some of these were directed by some of the country’s most well known children’s entertainers. One of these entertainers is Bobcat Goldthwait, who is best known for his dramatic work on stage and screen. He was the principal dancer of the musical “A Christmas Carol”, as well as the original cast of the TV show, “Fantasy Kingdom”.
According to the Chamber of Commerce, the large number of people at these events made the area unsafe for visitors. They have asked the police to close the arena until they can determine what caused the stampede that resulted in the closure of the arena. There were also reports of people getting hurt as they stampede out of the arena.
An official statement issued by the police read, “The officers arrived at the scene after a number of shots were fired. A police officer suffered a gun shot to the leg and was transported to a hospital. Two suspects were taken into custody without injuries. The suspect who is in custody appears to be connected to the incident through criminal activity and is in custody.”
The police are still looking for one suspect that is in custody, and the mall is temporarily closing down while the authorities conduct their search. Several nearby businesses have also been evacuated and closed while the authorities conduct their investigation. The FBI is now handling the situation and has asked local law enforcement agencies to assist them. In a news conference, police announced that the mall will remain closed until further notice. The mall will re-open after noon on Sunday. The FBI is asking everyone to leave the mall until they can finish processing the situation.
The FBI is asking people to avoid the mall until they are able to inspect the mall and determine whether or not there is a threat involving the shooter. The entire mall and surrounding businesses have been evacuated. People are being told to leave the area. The mall is being operated normally. There is no threat to the public or to any of the people inside the mall. The mall will re-open tomorrow as normal.
