U.S. Capitol complex on lockdown after reports motorist rams officers

Streets surrounding the U.S. Capitol and congressional office buildings were locked down, with a heavy police presence, on Friday (April 2) because of a security threat, a Reuters eyewitness said.

Capitol police said they were responding to reports that someone rammed a vehicle into two officers and a suspect was in custody. “Both officers are injured. All three have been transported to the hospital,” their statement said.

Dozens of police cars, marked and unmarked, raced toward the Capitol building. All roads leading to the complex were blocked by police or police officers.
