US Capitol on lockdown following shooting

Gunshots have been reported at the visitor centre at the US Capitol in Washington and workers have been told to take shelter.

The Capitol’s Sergeant-At-Arms said the gunman has been caught and one police officer was wounded.

The Capitol building is on lockdown due to the security threat, according to an email sent to congressional staffers.

People outside have been told to seek cover.

No one is currently allowed in or out of any buildings in the Capitol complex.

Capitol Police are expected to issue a statement soon.

US Congress is on recess for the Easter holiday, but some members of Congress and staff members were on site.

To enter the US Capitol or any Senate or House office buildings, visitors must go through a metal detector and weapons are not permitted.

    I heard Trump was in the area. Someone probably mistook him for an Orange Monkey and took a couple of pot shots at him.
    Probably DT Junior, I heard he likes to hunt and that he’s broke. Talk about trying looking to kill two birds with one stone. Lol.
