Lockdown lifted at U.S. Capitol

Washington, D.C. (AP) - The lockdown has been lifted at the U.S. Capitol after gunfire Thursday afternoon.

Police said a suspect is in custody. The person's condition is unknown.

A police officer was reportedly injured during the incident.

The entire complex was locked down as a precaution.

A law enforcement official said the shooting is related to a vehicle that tried to ram a security barricade at the White House.

The shooting comes two weeks after a deadly shooting at the nearby Navy Yard, and it comes amid a government shutdown.
