US Capitol -- lockdown
« on: April 02, 2021, 01:19:22 PM »
One officer dead.  :(   One suspect dead, just not soon enough.   >:(

The United States Capitol was locked down on Friday due to an "exterior security threat" after a car rammed into a barrier on the Senate side of the complex. One officer died and another was injured, according to United States Capitol Police (USCP), who said the suspect was killed by police after he exited his Navy Sedan and attacked them with a knife.

^The quote has 'navy' capitalized and makes is read like it was a US Navy sedan which is probably a bad thing. It was just a navy-colored sedan.

Was wondering about that myself.
