A U.S. Capitol Police officer has died after a driver crashed into a barricade on Constitution Avenue in Washington on Friday. Police shot and killed the driver, who exited his vehicle brandishing a knife and ran at two officers after crashing into them. The incident occurred near the Senate entrance to the Capitol. The building went on lockdown just after 1 p.m. Congress is in recess, and President Joe Biden left the White House earlier on Friday for Camp David.
