Police placed all U.S. Capitol buildings under lockdown on Friday as officers responded to reports that “someone rammed a vehicle into two USCP officers,” officials said.

USCP said in a tweet that officers were responding to the North Barricade vehicle-access point along Constitution Avenue and that a suspect is in custody.

“Both officers are injured. All three have been transported to the hospital,” the tweet adds.

An alert sent to staff advised that no entry or exit would be permitted “due to an external security threat.”
