One Capitol military officer was shot

Gunshots have been reported during a caller centre during a US Capitol in Washington and workers have been told to take shelter.

The Capitol’s Sergeant-At-Arms pronounced a gunman has been held and one military officer was wounded.

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

People outward have been told to find cover.

No one is now authorised in or out of any buildings in a Capitol complex.

Capitol Police are approaching to emanate a matter soon.
