Politico: The Capitol complex went into lockdown Friday after a driver crashed a vehicle into a barricade outside the building.
The Capitol Police said a suspect was in custody following reports of the car crash into two officers on Constitution Avenue. After ramming the car into a barricade, the driver exited the vehicle and brandished a sharp object, prompting Capitol Police officers to shoot the driver, according to a person briefed on the incident. Both the injured officers and the suspect were transported to a nearby hospital.

VT: QAnon has already claimed the whole thing was staged at the orders of President Biden and that the injured officers are faking and that the dead asshole is really a ‘FemBot.’
