ONE OFFICER KILLED IN ANOTHER U.S CAPITOL ATTACK
Written by wave FM on April 3, 2021
One officer was killed and a second injured on Friday after a vehicle rammed through security and crashed into a barrier at the U.S Capitol, forcing it into lockdown less than three months after a mob assault on Congress.
Acting Chief YOGANANDA PITTMAN said Capitol Police shot dead the driver after he jumped out of the car and swung at them with a knife.
Reports say no information was available on the identity of the attacker or his motivation, but Washington Metropolitan Police Chief ROBERT CONTEE indicated that it does not appear to be terrorism-related, but investigations will continue.
