Washington,. D.C. — Reports of gunshots just outside of the U.S. Capitol prompted a temporary lock down of the building around 2:30p.m. today. As of 3:45p.m. Federal law enforcement believe the shooting situation at the U.S. Capitol has been resolved. An intelligence source says so far, there is no tie to terrorism.
