    Capitol Police said they have found no indication that an armed man has been spotted on or near the Georgetown Law Center campus.

    Georgetown University put the following alert on its homepage Friday afternoon:

    "We are hearing reports from U.S. Capitol Police of a possible armed gunman on or near the Georgetown Law Center campus. This is not on the main campus. All Members of the Law Center community have been advised to shelter in place."

    However, Capitol Police said that nothing suspicious has been found after a search.  A representative did say that a gun was found under a tree near First and Independence, but that was not related to the search near the Georgetown Law Center campus.
