US Capitol building on lockdown due to an external security threat

The US Capitol building and surrounding streets in Washington DC are in lockdown after police warned of an “external security threat”. Capitol Police said that a suspect is in custody after reports that someone “rammed a vehicle” into two officers.

The suspect and both officers have been taken to hospital, police said. Video from outside the Capitol shows a vehicle that appears to have slammed into a barricade surrounding the complex.
