The scene outside the Capitol after shooting

The U.S Capitol was put under lockdown on October 3 after 2pm local time. Early reports suggest that a car attempted to run a barricade at the White House before driving towards Capitol Hill. Shots were fired though it has not been confirmed by whom. There are unconfirmed reports that a female suspect is dead.
