The United States Capitol was placed on lockdown Thursday afternoon following reports of shots fired in the vicinity of the chamber. A Capitol Police officer was injured.

The FBI was responding to the scene. A message from the Capitol Police ordered anyone in a House office to “shelter in place.”

“Close, lock and stay away from external doors and windows,” the message said.

The House recessed, and the Senate went into a quorum call — dispensing momentarily with its official business — shortly thereafter.

Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill tweeted: Shots fired outside the Capitol. We are in temporary lock down.
