Capitol lockdown: 1 officer dead, 1 injured after car rams into barrier; suspect killed by police
FOX ^ | 02 April 2021 | By Tyler Olson, Morgan Phillips

Capitol car crash is the latest threat to security at the complex

The United States Capitol was locked down on Friday due to an "exterior security threat" after a car rammed into a barrier on the Senate side of the complex. One officer died and another was injured, according to United States Capitol Police (USCP), who said the suspect was killed by police after he exited his Navy Sedan and attacked them with a knife.

Fox News is told security officials believe the suspect was a "lone wolf," not connected to any other group.

"Man, we just shot somebody," an officer told Fox News.

Metropolitan Police Department Acting Chief Robert Contee said in a briefing the attack did not appear to be terrorism-related and the suspect had no known connection to a member of Congress. The suspect was not known to police.

Acting USCP Chief Yogananda Pittman said the suspect had exited the car, knife in hand, and "lunged toward" Capitol Police.

"Due to an exterior security threat, no entry or exit is permitted at this time in any building in the Capitol complex," a voice announcement throughout the complex sounded earlier Friday afternoon.

Right on schedule. I love these reports. They know already it was not a know person, a person connected to a congress critter, and was a lone wolf.

It’s like an Army Sedan, only it’s dark blue.

This would seem to indicate this was not a white person.

Clearly Antifa. If it were a white male MAGA, you know what narrative would be spinning right now.

The sedans parked in the Navy section. Army ones are ugly.

Nice shot. White supremist all the way.

And down the memory hole it goes—even though he actually killed one more cop through violence than the January protest.

Does. Not. Fit. Narrative.

A white supremacist African-American, no doubt.
