Almost immediately after the shots were heard, the House recessed and the Senate went into a quorum call. They have been told to “immediately shelter in place.”

Throughout this incident, various politicians have been keeping people updated on Twitter:

At this time, there are reports of one injury.

Terrance Gainer, the Senate’s Sergeant at Arms, said, “There are reports of injuries.” Harry Reid was quoted in CNN as saying there was at least “one injury.”

Here is the official statement put out by the U.S. Capitol:

“SHELTER IN PLACE. Gunshots have been reported on Capitol Hill requiring staff in all Senate Office Buildings to immediately shelter in place. Close, lock and stay away from external doors and windows. Take annunciators, emergency supply kits and escape hoods; and move to your office’s assigned shelter in place location or the innermost part of the office away from external doors or windows. If you are not near your office, go to the office nearest to you and shelter with that office and then check in with your OEC. No one will be permitted to enter or exit the building until directed by USCP. Staff is advised to monitor the situation. Further information will be provided as it becomes available.”

We will keep you up to date on the situation as information becomes available.

UPDATE: 

According to a DC official, the incident started at the White House and then ended on Capitol Hill.

As reported by CBS, “Sources say the incident started when the woman tried to ram the barricade at the White House with her vehicle. She then fled 16 blocks to Capitol Hill. ABC’s White House correspondent Ann Compton reports that a child was in the car but was not harmed. Police say the woman had no identification on her and her car was leased out-of-state.”

The female suspect was shot dead by police.

One officer was injured during the incident. As he drove to the scene, his car was lifted out of the air by a metal barricade coming out the ground, and then slammed on its front grill.

Two additional injuries have been reported.

The lockdown, which affected Capitol Hill and the White House, was lifted around 3 pm after officers put out a statement saying, “The incident has concluded. It is now safe to resume normal activities.”

President Obama has been notified of the incident.
