‘House of Cards’ Maryland Set on Lockdown Due to Active Shooter

The “House of Cards” set in Maryland has been placed on lockdown while police search for an active shooter in the area, Variety has confirmed.

“We have been in touch with local authorities and are aware of a shooting situation that happened about a mile away from the House of Cards set. Production on the show has not been impacted,” Netflix and Media Rights Capital said in a joint statement to Variety.

Police are searching for a suspect identified as Radee Prince, wanted for the shooting of five people in a nearby business park around 9 a.m. local time. Three of the people shot have died while two others are in critical condition, per the Baltimore Sun. Some schools in the area have also been placed on a modified lockdown.

The shooting appears to have targeted a business known as Advanced Granite Solutions, with all those injured in the attack being employees of that company. Police are still investigating Prince’s connection to the business.

“There’s an individual out there on the loose who’s committed one of the most heinous acts in our county, we certainly consider him armed and dangerous,” said Harford County sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said.

“House of Cards” executive producer Dana Brunetti wrote about the incident on Facebook, saying, “Shooting near House of Cards set. I turn on the news to see what is happening, and guess what they’re covering? Not the 5 dead and 3 wounded while gunman is still on the loose.”

“CNN asked me to come on air the other day to talk about House of Cards and Russia, and today there is an ongoing active shooter near the House of Cards stage and ZERO coverage,” he continued. “They’re going nonstop of Sessions and Trump! WTF?!”
