The area surrounding the “House of Cards” set in Maryland was on lockdown Wednesday morning due to a mass shooting at a nearby office park.

Five people were shot and three have died, per local police, and the suspect is still on the loose, according to USA Today. The two wounded are in critical condition.

Producer Dana Brunetti told TheWrap that Robin Wright is on set filming the Netflix series today, though Kevin Spacey is off.

Brunetti added that his costume designer told him she cannot get to their Joffa, Maryland, set because of the manhunt in the surrounding area. The designer was out picking up supplies when local police began responding to reports of an active shooter, Brunetti said from Los Angeles.

“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,” Netflix said in a statement. “Production on the show has not been impacted.”

Per its official Twitter handle, the Maryland State Police are currently seeking 37-year-old Radee Labeeb Prince as a suspect in the shooting. He is considered armed and dangerous, per the cops.

Harford County Sheriff’s Major William Davis said the suspect has a criminal record, according to USA Today, though he did not go into detail. Five schools in the area are on lockdown as a safety precaution.

The suspect is “associated” with Advanced Granite Solutions in Edgewood, Davis said, and all of the victims were employees of the firm. Authorities are searching for a black Chevy Acadia with Delaware license plates.

“This does appear to be a targeted attack for that business,” Davis said. “We do not believe there is an immediate threat to anything in the community… with the qualifier that there is an armed and dangerous suspect out there.”
