US Capitol on lockdown as vehicle rams into 2 policemen

The US Capitol went into lockdown on April 02 after a car rammed into a security barrier outside the iconic building, which has resulted in two officers being injured, with one of them being stabbed by the driver of the vehicle, according to local media.

US Capitol Police said that the incident took place at the North Barricade vehicle access point along Constitution Avenue.

The Capitol complex remains in total lockdown, and no one is being allowed in or out of any Capitol buildings.

The incident follows months after January 6 when a group of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol to protest legislators confirming electoral slates from battleground US states they thought were invalid.
