UPDATE 3:53 P.M. EST: U.S. Capitol Police have reportedly lifted the lockdown order.


What truly terrifying news!

The Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. was put on lockdown Monday afternoon when a man reportedly shot a police officer at the Capitol Visitor Center complex.

One female bystander was reportedly injured. Luckily, the officer seems to have suffered only minor injuries.

The suspect has already been captured.

Staff and tourists were told to stay in their offices and lock the doors, and while authorities do not believe there to be any further threats, the complex is still on lockdown at this point in time.

The White House was also put on lockdown early Monday morning, but we're hearing that was due to a separate, non-violent incident where someone was caught sneaking onto the lawn.

We will continue to update you as this story develops…

Barack Obama is getting heat once again!

Over the past week, the president made an historic trip to Cuba to restore U.S. relations, and mixed business with pleasure when he attended a few innings of a baseball game on Tuesday.

But many critics weren't happy with Obama's sports spectating and on-air interview with ESPN the same day over 30 people were killed in the Brussels terror attacks.

So, after a video surfaced on Wednesday night featuring POTUS dancing the tango with Michelle Obama at a state dinner in Argentina, commentators put him on blast for his vacation-y optics in the wake of such a tragedy.
