Man Drives Car Into Barricade Near US Capitol, Opens Fire Before Killing Himself

US Capitol attack news

The incident comes at a time when law enforcement authorities in the US are facing threats following the FBI’s search of ex-President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida.

A man drove his car into the vehicle barricade outside the US Capitol early on Sunday and fired several shots into the air before fatally shooting himself.

The incident occurred at about 4 a.m. at East Capitol Street and Second Street.

According to DC’s Metropolitan Police Department, when officers heard the gunfire, they started approaching the man when he shot himself. Nobody else was hurt as a result of the incident.

Police added that they are handling the investigation of the man’s death and are also looking into his background.

“At this time, it does not appear the man was targeting any Members of Congress, who are on recess, and it does not appear officers fired their weapons,” a statement by the police says.

Sunday’s incident outside the US Capitol came at a time when police officers and FBI agents across the country have been receiving threats following the FBI’s search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida earlier this week.

  1. Plus, the ‘Lone Wolf’ attack on the Cncinnati Ohio FBI Office last week…!
    Those Veterans and former LE who have been forced out due to the proto-Nazi policies are now gearing-up for an armed civil conflict in the U.S.. That is a given based on an out-of-control Illuminati Government and Zionist / Communist forces operating as BLM, ANTIFA, LGBT, ADL, AIPAC, and Alphabet Police
    The third largest political party in the U.S., the Libertarian Party, tweeted just a few hours ago to it’s members:
    “Go and buy ammunition’. Source; Hal Turner Radio Show.
    I also suspect that Veterans, Militia Members and Patriots who are terminally ill are making plans for final Lone Wolf attacks on various alphabet agency targets for the abuses that they have dished-out for uears against the American People.
    Only by removing the Zio-Talmudic Noahide Law filth in the ‘high places’ can proper legislation, repealing of unjust laws, and the arrests of the Swamp Creatures can bring back societal stability, economic growth, halting inflation, and the restoration of Liberty!
    NOTE TO PRESIDENT TRUMP; Jared Kushner and Simon of the USSS are NOT to be trusted!
    Get Simon OUT of Mar-A-Lago, and the Kushners out of your lives!!! It may be painful, but you have the nation to think about IF you make it to run as #47 in 2024!
