    News is still sketchy. Two unidentified officers shot, unknown condition. The gunman was also shot and is in custody.

    There was a shoot out in the lobby of the federal court building. Includes federal offices and federal courts and bankruptcy court.

    Officials don't know if guy acted alone. All streets surrounding building are blocked as well as part of I15.

    There's a car around the corner LE is interested in.

    Good grief! There was a shot gun used and this was a federal court house building?

    The FBI is getting involved in the investigation. It's now being reported it wasn't Federal Marshalls that were shot, but guards that protect the building. "Federal Protective Service Officers."

    I personally find this scary. My daughter goes to that Courthouse. She's checking to see if any of her co-workers are there.

    FWIW, they just said on FOX that in addition to the federal offices and courthouse, this building also houses two senator's offices.

    From what I've gathered, they now believe there are no accomplices. LE is just slowly evacuating the building, floor by floor. This is their normal procedure when this sort of thing happens. The people are being taken to a 'staging area,' I believe at a school next door. The school has also been on lock-down.

    PS.............SuziQ, they said on FOX that they may not have a motive for hours.......fran

    One of the federal officers has died. The second one is in 'serious condition.'
    They just played a video from a cell phone of the actual shooting. There were approximately 30 shots total fired.

    I believe it may have been just outside the door. You couldn't really see too much in the video. But you could hear the shots being fired. It's on youtube.
    I'll go and see if I can find it.

    PS..........they're getting differing witness statements. Some say it started outside going inside,.............but others say it started inside and then going outside....fran
