CAPITOL LOCKDOWN: Driver ‘Rams’ Police at US Capitol Sparking Fears of Further Violence

Nearly three months after a mob stormed the Capitol, the building is once again on lockdown.

The FBI believed wholeheartedly that the storming of the US Capitol on January 6th was just the beginning of a much larger, more concerted effort to impede on the work of the government, and they spent several weeks warning the nation that trouble was coming.

This led to some lengthy deployments by the National Guard in Washington DC, with some units reporting terrible treatment at the hands of their hosts.

Now, nearly three months after that attempted insurrection, the Capitol is again on lockdown after a driver appeared to purposefully ram their vehicle into two Capitol Police officers.

In a statement, the U.S. Capitol Police said it was responding to reports that “someone rammed a vehicle into two USCP officers.”

“A suspect is in custody,” the USCP statement said. “Both officers are injured. All three have been transported to the hospital.”

Earlier, a message played over the loudspeakers inside the Capitol said that all 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 photo taken by an Associated Press photographer showed officers surrounding a vehicle that appeared to have crashed into a barricade on the Capitol’s north side.

The incident had the National Guard on the move.

Few further details have been released at the time of this writing, and no motivation has yet been given for the violent incident.
