Man Drives Vehicle Into US Capitol Barricade, Exits Vehicle With Knife, 2 Dead 1 Injured


An officer is dead and another injured after police say a suspect drove a vehicle into a barricade at the Capitol, and then exited the vehicle with a knife.

The United States Capitol was locked down on Friday due to an “exterior security threat” after a car rammed into a barrier on the Senate side of the complex. One officer died and another was injured, according to United States Capitol Police (USCP), who said the suspect was killed by police after he exited his Navy Sedan and attacked them with a knife.


They believe that the suspect acted alone.

Because of the holiday, many offices and buildings were nearly empty.

This is a developing story.
