Capitol Police revealed that someone “rammed a vehicle into two USCP officers." Law enforcement officials reportedly told the AP that one officer was transported to a nearby hospital by a police car while the other was taken by emergency medical crews.

According to NBC News, a driver jumped out of a car with a knife after ramming their vehicle through the barricade used by senators and staff on weekdays. KTLA reports that staff members received a mass text message urging them to stay away from windows and doors. 

President Joe Biden had just left the White House prior to the scary incident. 

This is a developing story.
