The suspect was shot and died at the hospital.

A man rammed a auto into two Capitol Police officers at a barricade outside the U.S. Capitol on Friday afternoon before being shot to death by authorities when he got out of the vehicle while holding what appeared to be a knife, two law enforcement officials said on Friday. The suspect was not known to police, and the attack does not appear to be related to terrorism, she said.

The Capitol complex has been on high alert since the January 6 attack by former President Donald Trump's supporters, which left five people dead.

The incident happened at a checkpoint near the Capitol.

The officials said both Capitol Police officers were taken to the hospital, with at least one in serious condition.

Pittman said the U.S. Capitol Police did not have the suspect on file, so there is at present no indication that "there's any nexus to any member of Congress". Five people, including a Capitol Police officer, died during that assault.

Hundreds have been federally charged in connection to the riot, which came after a gathering in which Trump kept pushing baseless claims of election fraud.
