After reports that someone hit two U.S. Capitol Police officers with a car, Capitol Police opened fire at the north barricade of the Capitol complex, law enforcement sources tell ABC News.

Two officers are said to be injured, one critically, the sources said. Law enforcement sources tell ABC News the suspect is dead.

…A vehicle occupied “by a single individual, the driver, sought to ram the north barrier at the Capitol,” according to a federal official who was briefed.

The suspect rammed the north barricade and exited the vehicle with a weapon and was shot by Capitol Police, according to law enforcement sources.

There is video being circulated online purportedly of the suspect being taken by stretcher with EMS performing CPR.
