The U.S. Capitol is in lockdown, after sources say shots were fired outside.

According to U.S. Capitol Police, officers are injured. One person could be seen being carried off in a stretcher.

Sirens are going off in the Capitol, and people on the Hill are being told to "shelter in place."

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.

Witnesses saw a baby being taken from the car.

Police have locked House members in the chamber. The developments come as lawmakers were debating a series of small spending bills, amid the ongoing partial government shutdown.

The lockdown follows the mass shooting last month at the Washington Navy Yard.

Fox News' Carl Cameron and Chad Pergram contributed to this report.

I actually hope it's someone on our side this time around. I think people on the right are genuinely angry, and rightfully so.

Like it or not, people on our side are upset at a lot of things right now.

If you are not upset at all these "coincidental" IRS audits, NSA spying on citizens, railroading Besselley Noukala for purportedly creating a video that precipitated the Benghazi attacks, you are not an American.

Top it off with all the lies about how brilliant Barry is, and the VERY REAL economic damage caused by ObamaCare, not to mention Eric Holder sitting on things where people should be prosecuted, it simply is not right.

When government behaves like this and government won't correct it, people lose respect for it. When people lose respect for the legal structures, it becomes a banana republic or at least more like a corrupt kleptocracy like Russia.

That's the difference between people like me and you. If a Republican were pulling these things, I have no problem giving him his walking papers.

You guys "stand by your man" no matter what they do.

Wonder how many AR-15's will be "found" in the car to make this seem more than it is.

Qh no, say it isn't so.

They are saying she is a Somalian.

Could it be true?

al-Shabab, a Somalia-based group of Islamic militants has claimed responsibility.

Well...it was a Bosnian Muslim immigrant down at Jacksonville's airport earlier this week.

No one can be surprised.
