The U.S. Capitol building is on lockdown Friday morning out of an abundance of caution due to police activity.
Everyone is being asked to shelter in place as police search for a woman inside the Capitol.
No one is permitted to enter or exit until directed by U.S. Capitol Police.
People inside have been told to close, lock and stay away from external doors and windows, and to silence mobile phones.
