After the car accident, the USCP lifted the blockade of the Capitol
Police: “This seems to have nothing to do with terrorism”
Robert Contee of the Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department just stated at a briefing outside the U.S. Capitol that the attack by a man driving a car in the Capitol “seems nothing to do with terrorism”.
The Acting Chief of the Capitol Police, Yogananda Pittman, just described that the suspect who died in the attack came out of the car after ramming his officer and hitting an obstacle. Then he rushed towards them “violently” and waved. A knife.
It is understood that the suspect was subsequently shot dead by the police.
Pittman said earlier that after two Capitol Police officers were hit, “one person succumbed” to their injuries and was taken to the hospital.
The name has not been published because a close relative has been notified.
