MONTPELIER, Vt. — State government buildings in Vermont’s Capitol complex in Montpelier are on lockdown after a report of a person with a gun.

A statement from Gov. Phil Scott’s office said police from federal, state and local law enforcement agencies were responding to a report the person entered the Vermont State Tax Office with a gun Friday.

The state Department of Human Resources put out a statement saying, “our understanding is that the situation is well under control and not a danger.” It didn’t provide more details.

The governor’s office said both evacuation and shelter-in-place procedures were activated.

Some streets are blocked off.
