The U.S. Capitol is on lockdown after shots were fired on the West Front of the complex, a spokesman for Capitol Police said.

Authorities confirmed that the shooting was an apparent suicide.

The suspected shooter has been neutralized but the U.S. Capitol Building has been locked down as a precautionary measure,” said Lt. Kimberly Schneider of the Capitol Police.

Police are also investigating a suspicious package on the lower West Terrace of the Capitol, Schneider said. Roads are closed around the Capitol.
