US Capitol on lockdown due to an external security threat

 

The US Capitol is on lockdown as law enforcement responded to reports of a shooting and that an individual rammed a vehicle into two law enforcement officers.
"(US Capitol Police) is responding to the North Barricade vehicle access point along (Constitution) Avenue for reports someone rammed a vehicle into two USCP officers. A suspect is in custody. Both officers are injured. All three have been transported to the hospital," USCP said in a tweet Friday.
A senior congressional aide and a US Capitol Police source tell CNN that after the driver of the vehicle rammed his car into a barricade on Constitution Avenue, the driver exited the vehicle brandishing a knife. USCP responded, shooting the suspect and taking him into custody.
An email from the US Capitol Police, obtained by CNN, confirmed that sequence of events. The email stated Capitol Police officers shot the suspect after he rammed the barricade and exited holding a knife. That suspect is now in custody — breathing and conscious — transported to the hospital. Both officers were also injured, and one is being transported to the hospital by USCP.

    1. Guys the capital has been attacked 5 times in past couple years, 4 resulted in breaches, 2 stopped a vote.

      Anyone claiming the other side is at fault is literally a extremist moron who can’t help but be tribal.

    2. MENTAL HEALTH IS A MOTHERFUCKER!!! We’re all on here letting the politics of this country divide us!

    1. @Mansfield question: when were the other times?? Cause I never heard about the other times the Capitol was attacked ,you’d think That would be BIGGER news over the past Five Years. Cause I think people would LOVE to know the DATEs of those other attacks. Why didn’t #45 talk about Those attacks,please give dates ,cause I’d like to look those up ,please. (4 breaches ? That would be a massive security issue ,cause we only know of The 6th and Today….

    3. @DARK SIDE Trump lunatics? What do you believe makes a person a Trump lunatic? Make America Great Again? Follow the constitution? Don’t let other countries take advantage of the U.S.? Investigate election irregularities? What are you talking about that you believe makes Trump supporters mentally ill?

  2. I was there two years ago. Once in a lifetime thing. Glad I made it before all this stuff happened

    1. I would love to visit one day. Seems to be a lot of history there. To bad that some people feel unsafe, that they may not go.

    2. @Frank Harris so now more strawmanning and more lies from you. It must be so terrible to be you. I truly feel sorry for you.

  3. My condolences to the family, fellow Officers and friends of the Officer killed in this attack.

    1. @Krypto Knight The Democrat party doesn’t believe that, though, and you KNOW they would be making a martyr out of Green if the police would have shot from the start.

    2. @Bill Johnson as far as i know the capitol cops in january 6 only killed 1 terrorist, where is the dead patriot ?

    3. @Bill Johnson Well..I guess you can be reported to the FBI for threats against the President…now can’t ya… with statements like that.

    4. @L Whitaker The FBI is too busy trying to track down these violent Biden boys who are killing in their Alzheimer’s King’s name.

  4. This is unbelievable. I’m very sad to learn of the loss of life with our Capital Police Officer.

    1. @Jon Taffer as soon as I seen that they weren’t saying the race of the killer, I knew he wasn’t white.

  6. When the heat of the moment’s long gone, some people will have the excuse that they’ve been had. For the families of those who lost their lives, however, there’s just permanent pain.
