Late Monday morning, a shooting in the area of The Social Security Administration headquarters in suburban Baltimore prompted a shutdown. Baltimore County police were called to the scene in Woodlawn, just west of Baltimore, in response to a report of a shooting and robbery, according to the Associated Press.

Police say they were called at 11:43 a.m. about the shooting in the woods near Walden Circle, behind the Social Security complex. Police notified the agency, which locked down the campus because the suspect has not been caught.

An agency spokesperson confirms that the lockdown ended at about 2 p.m.

The shooting victim, a man, suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Police say he'll be taken to Sinai Hospital of Baltimore. The suspect is believed to have run away.

Social Security spokesman Kia Green said nearly 12,000 people work in the Woodlawn complex.
