The car that crashed into a barrier on Capitol Hill in Washington on Friday being taken in a truck.

US: A man drove his car into a barricade near the US Capitol early on Sunday and then began firing gunshots in the air before fatally shooting himself, police said.

The incident happened just before 4 am at a vehicle barricade set at East Capitol Street NE and 2nd Street SE in Washington.

The attack is reminiscent of an incident when a man drove a vehicle into two Capitol Police officers at a checkpoint in April 2021, killing an 18-year veteran of the force. And many on Capitol Hill remain on edge after supporters of the then-president stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

Authorities said the man, whose identity has not been released, crashed into the barricade and that as he was getting out of the car, the vehicle became engulfed in flames. The man then opened fire, firing several shots into the air as police approached. Capitol Police said the man shot himself as the officers neared. He was later pronounced dead.
