A police officer was killed Friday after a suspect rammed his vehicle into a security barrier and injured two police officers at the US Capitol in Washington, DC.

The police officers and the suspect, who was shot, were taken to a nearby hospital.

One of the police officers was later pronounced dead as was the suspect, the Capitol Police said during a press conference shortly after the incident.

After crashing into the security barrier, the suspect got out of his car and began running at police officers with a knife in his hand.

The FBI later released a statement saying they were providing support to the Capitol Police.

Videos from the Capitol showed a heavy security presence on the scene, and a helicopter was recorded flying close to the complex.
