(ABC News) Two law enforcement officers are among five wounded after an armed suspect fired shots inside the Navy Sea Systems Command headquarters building in Washington, D.C., this morning, according to ABC News.

According to the report from ABC News:

The suspect, who is still at large, is being described as a thin, bald, male.

The incident occurred in a 3,000-person building at 8:20 a.m. Law enforcement officials initially told personnel to evacuate the building but they are now being told to shelter in place.

The White House said that President Obama was briefed this morning about the ongoing situation.

There is a ground stop at Reagan National imposed by the FAA due to the ongoing situation at Navy Yard, a Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority spokeswoman tells ABC News.

The Naval Sea Systems Command, the largest of the Navy's five commands, is responsible for engineering, building, buying and maintaining ships, submarines and combat systems in the Navy's fleet.
