A driver has been shot after a car rammed into a barricade outside the US Capitol building and injured two police officers, law enforcement officials have said.

At least one officer was in serious condition, while the driver was in a critical condition, the Associated Press has reported.

Officers told the agency that someone “rammed a vehicle into two USCP officers” and that a suspect was taken into custody.

They added the crash happened at a checkpoint near the Capitol.

The message added: “If you are outside, seek cover.”

It is not known what condition the person who was shot is in, and their identity has not been confirmed.
