Two US Capitol cops were injured when they were hit by a car that smashed through a barrier Friday afternoon, officials said.
One suspect was taken into custody, police said, and the building was placed on lockdown.
Cellphone video clips showed a helicopter landing near the Capitol before taking off a short time later.
A photo also shows a dark sedan with its front end crumpled against a white metal, pop-up barricade with the words “STOP” in red.
The driver’s door and trunk were also open as authorities gathered around a band of yellow caution tape.
There were unconfirmed initial reports of a shooting.
