    (CNN) – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on Thursday that one person was injured in a shooting on Capitol Hill, CNN's Dana Bash reports.

    Police are reacting to reports of shots fired on Capitol Hill in Washington. An order was given over the Capitol speaker system to shelter in place because of an active shooter situation.

    There were reports of multiple gunshots near the Senate Hart Office Building, and people were seen running.

    Capitol Police sent out the following advisory to staffers:

    "SHELTER IN PLACE. Gunshots have been reported on Capitol Hill requiring all occupants in all House Office Buildings to shelter in place. Close, lock and stay away from external doors and windows. Take annunciators, Go Kits and escape hoods; and move to the innermost part of the office away from external doors or windows. If you are not in your office, take shelter in the nearest office, check in with your OEC and wait for USCP to clear the incident. No one will be permitted to enter or exit the building until directed by USCP. All staff should monitor the situation. Further information will be provided as it becomes available."

    The House and Senate went into recess after the shooting.

    She was reportedly unarmed. I think it was unnecessary to have been killed.

    She was plenty armed... with her car. Perhaps Obama will call for a ban on "assault-Infinties." It's also worth noting that a fair portion of our police-force these days has first hand experience VBIEDs... small wonder that they're jumpy about barricades being rammed at the White House.

    As an aside, has anyone thought to check if Obama be da baby-daddy?
