Cap police officer said shots outside, thus lockdown inside the Capitol.

Possible this was the end of a car chase:
Senior congressional staffers and one eyewitness told Fox News the incident began with a car chase, which came to a stop near the Capitol building. Sources said several police cars were in pursuit. When they boxed in the other vehicle, the driver got out and five or six shots were fired, sources said.
So, this is not an attack on the Capitol.

Sources said the chase started when a woman tried to ram a gate near the White House.
It’s early, and a lot of this is speculation. I’d expect more things to change.
