A report of shots fired at the Capitol Hill Visitors Center this afternoon led to a shelter in place warning on the Hill and a lockdown at the White House that has since been lifted, according to AP.
AP reports that the shooter was apprehended and taken into custody and that a U.S. Capitol Police officer was injured, although an update stated that “later reports raised doubts about who, if anyone, was shot.”
There has been an isolated incident at the US Capitol. There is no active threat to the public
