Gunshots were fired in the vicinity of the U.S. Capitol building today. The Capitol has been locked down requiring staff in all Senate Office Buildings to take shelter. Capitol Police said in an alert to Senate staff and offices “Close, lock and stay away from external doors and windows.”

Three Senators reported the gunfire. There has been no confirmation from the FBI that shots had indeed been fired and there is no report of injuries at this time.
