Lockdown at the White House After Capitol Hill Shooting

The situation appears to be contained.

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.”
