Democrat Rep. Jamaal Bowman allegedly pulled the fire alarm in the Cannon House Office Building.

Investigations are underway.

The Hill reported:

Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.) pulled a fire alarm in the Cannon House Office Building on Saturday, about an hour before the House passed a stopgap measure to fund the government ahead of the midnight deadline.

The fire alarm caused the building to be evacuated.

It is unclear why he pulled the alarm, though Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) told The Hill that the congressman was attempting to delay the vote.

House Administration Committee Chairman Brian Steil (R-Wis.) said he will launch an investigation into the incident.
