Photos and videos show that a car rammed into a security barricade outside of the U.S. Capitol building on Friday afternoon. There is heavy police presence at the scene, and U.S. Capitol Police said that one officer was killed and another injured in the incident.

Capitol staff were told to “seek cover” after reports of an external security threat came in. Initially, it was believed that there had been a shooting, but it was later confirmed that a car had rammed a barricade. There is currently no entry or exit permitted at the Capitol building.

There are also photos and videos showing a helicopter landing on the east front of the building.
