Multiple reports of a shooting at the U.S. Capitol were issued Monday, but details of the situation are still coming in. 

Capitol Police locked down the multi-building complex at the U.S. Capitol just before 3 p.m. Monday, for what was billed as "a potential security threat." 

According to The Associated Press, the White House was also put on lockdown. 

The Senate sergeant at arms issued a statement Monday afternoon as the reports began streaming in: "Shooter has been caught. One police officer shot, but not seriously. Remain sheltered in place." 

"The Capitol has been locked down due to reports of shots being fired at the Capitol Visitors Center. No other information is available at this time," supervisors of the House Daily Press Gallery said in a statement.
