BREAKING: Shots Fired Outside U.S. Capitol, Here’s Who Authorities Have In Custody Now

The security breaches in Washington, D.C. continue and have now stepped up a notch to shots being fired down the street from the White House, outside the U.S. Capitol. Now, police have a suspect in custody after this extremely close call.

According to ABC News, “Police responded to the area at Washington Ave and Independence Ave, which is located near the U.S. Botanic Garden and the Rayburn House office building,” after a man drove his car into a U.S. Capitol Policeman’s cruiser. The FBI is now on the scene and they have a man in custody after officers were forced to shoot at his car.

This attack comes almost exactly 24 hours after the White House went on lockdown yesterday due to the discovery of a “suspicious package” on the grounds, which turned out to be a box. While it was found to not be an explosive, it could have been a trial run and needs to be taken seriously.

This is a developing story and we are awaiting the driver’s photo and more details on this suspect. Please stay with us for more details as they come available.
