A car rammed a barricade outside the U.S. Capitol today injuring two Capitol Police officers and leading to the driver being shot, according to law enforcement officials speaking to the Associated Press.
Both officers were injured with at least one officer in serious condition, while the driver was in critical condition, the officials said. Capitol Police say that someone “rammed a vehicle into two USCP officers” and that a suspect was taken into custody.
The crash and shooting happened at a checkpoint near the Capitol as Congress is on recess. It comes as Washington DC has been on edge for nearly three months after the riot at the US Capitol as Congress was voting to certify Joe Biden as president.
The law enforcement officials told the AP that the suspect was shot and was being taken to the hospital in critical condition. One of the officers who was injured was taken by police car to the hospital; the other was being transported by emergency medical crews.
The U.S. Capitol was placed on lockdown after the shooting and staff were told they could not enter or exit buildings.
The incident occurred about 100 yards from the entrance of the building on the Senate side of the Capitol. The security checkpoint is typically used by senators and staff on weekdays.
The Biblical Prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21) foretell that there will be an environment of violence as it was in the days of Noah signaling that the world is nearing the end of this age.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
