From The National File:

Two Capitol Police officers have been injured after a car rammed into them near the Capitol fencing on Friday afternoon, with the suspect shot after exiting the car with a knife.

Video from the Capitol on Friday afternoon shows a car smashed into the “temporary” barrier placed around the Capitol, with two people being put onto stretchers.

The Capitol Police issued a statement following media reports on the incident, confirming that the car was rammed into two Capitol Police officers, with one suspect in custody. Both officers are injured, with the suspect also injured. All three have been taken to hospital.

Further media reports, including from Fox News’s John Roberts, and NBC News, report that the suspect exited the vehicle with a knife, and was then shot by Capitol Police. A senior law enforcement official said that one officer was slashed in the face with the knife by the suspect.

Capitol taff received a text message at around 1PM from Capitol Police informing them of an “external security threat,” telling them that no entry or exit is permitted, and to stay away from exterior windows and doors.

Jake Sherman of Punchbowl News shared video from the Capitol of a helicopter landing on the east side, something he has “never seen anything like” happening before.

No legislators are in the Capitol building today, with the legislature being on recess. The National Guard, who have been present in DC since January, were nowhere near the scene at the time.

This is a breaking story and will be updated with more information.
