Posted July 12

The state Capitol in Olympia, Washington, is on lockdown Wednesday, and people are being advised to remain indoors, an official with the office of Gov. Jay Inslee told CNN.

"All of our buildings are on lockdown due to reports of an active shooter two blocks away from our office," the press office official said.

The Washington State Patrol tweeted that police activity at the Natural Resources and Office Building 2 of the Capitol campus led to the lockdown.
