Breaking: Critical Incident at Capitol, Barricade Slammed by Vehicle, Helicopter Landing on Grounds, Stretchers Spotted

Police locked down the U.S. Capitol on Friday afternoon after a driver rammed a vehicle into two U.S. Capitol Police officers.

Both officers were injured. They and the suspect were transported to a hospital, according to a U.S. Capitol Police statement.

U.S. Capitol Police said all Capitol buildings were being locked down “due to an external security threat” and staff members were told they could not enter or exit the buildings.

A law enforcement official also said officers were responding to a report of a possible shooting on a street near the Capitol complex.

The official could not discuss an ongoing investigation publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
