A U.S. Capitol Police officer has been shot at the Capitol Visitor Center complex in Washington, D.C. The officer’s injuries are reportedly not life-threatening, and the alleged gunman has been apprehended.
“One suspect is in custody, no further suspects appear to be at large, however the U.S. Capitol Police are continuing to investigate,” read an email sent to congressional employees. “All staff and visitors in all buildings are to remain sheltered in place.”
The White House was put on lock-down for several minutes, but that caution has been lifted, according to Yahoo News Chief Washington Correspondent Olivier Knox.
