Man crashes burning vehicle into US Capitol barricade, begins firing gun, shoots himself

Fox-

An unidentified man reportedly set his car on fire by driving into a U.S. Capitol barricade early Sunday morning. He then got out of his car and began firing a weapon indiscriminately before shooting himself, police say.

 U.S. Capitol police say officers immediately responded when they heard the sound of gunfire at roughly 4 a.m. There were no reported injuries aside from the driver.

The man’s motive in the incident is unknown. The incident reportedly lasted only a matter of moments, and officers did not have time to return fire before the man turned his weapon on himself.

“At this time, it does not appear the man was targeting any Members of Congress, who are on recess, and it does not appear officers fired their weapons,” Capitol police said in a statement.

The incident comes more than a year after another vehicle crashed into a Capitol barricade in 2021, killing one police officer and wounding another.

The attack killed officer Billy Evans and sent the Capitol Hill Police Department “reeling,” according to the Capitol Police union.

  1. ….see, that’s the problem with actual nuts. No matter how much the fibbiestry to groom them for a specific task after they fuel their mental illness, its really hard to keep a crazy person on-script as they tend to blow out unpredictability and act crazy because they ARE crazy, just like the FBI helped make them. They got him to fire a gun anyway, but less effectively than the average DC thig, and he TOTALLY forgot to yell “HEIL MAGA!” and a bunch or racial slurs while actually killing sacrificial cops like they taught him.

    Amateur.

    …oh well, maybe the next one will do better, or the next one, or thr one after that, fibbies got TONS of crazies they keep un the pipeline because no one stops them, so sooner or later one will pay off…

  2. At this time, it does not appear the man was targeting any Members of Congress, who are on recess…

    Even if they weren’t on recess, at 4:00 a.m. you certainly won’t find them at the Capitol. At 4:00 a.m. they’re in private drinking clubs, whore houses, and bath clubs.

    It doesn’t say whether the Capitol *Police* say whether they were disappoint at not getting to kill somebody else…
