The area around Capitol Hill has been locked down as a precaution

The US Capitol is on lockdown in Washington DC after shots were fired on Saturday afternoon.

A statement from Washington police said the suspected shooter had been “neutralized” but the area was being locked down as a precautionary measure.

Police are also investigating a suspicious package found on the lower west terrace of the Capitol building, the statement said.

Congress is not in session, so there are few representatives in town.
