Two officers are supposedly injured, one seriously, the sources stated.

The U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) stated in a tweet soon before 1:30 p.m. ET they're"reacting to the North Barricade automobile entry point across Independence Avenue for reports a car into two USCP officers"

The USCP later adjusted the place to Constitution Avenue.

Police stated from the tweet that both officers and the defendant were hauled to the hospital.

An automobile occupied"by one person, the motorist, hunted to ram the north barrier in the Capitol," according to a federal official who had been briefed.

The Capitol is on lockdown because of this circumstance. Staffers on the Hill have been delivered a message from U.S. Capitol Police about 1:20 p.m. ET stating"because of an outside security threat" which"no entrance or exit is allowed." The message said individuals could move around within the building,"but keep away from exterior doors and windows. If you're outside, seek refuge."

It's still unknown if that was an intentional assault, a briefed national official told ABC News, and researchers are actively attempting to figure out that. There wasn't any increased threat posture in the Capitol earlier this happened on Friday. Congress is currently in recess and lots of staff offices have been closed in observance of Good Friday.
