WASHINGTON--A man drove a car into a barrier at the U.S. Capitol early Sunday. The man’s car burst into flames. He then got out, fired several shots and shot himself, said U.S. Capitol Police.
The incident happened about 4 a.m. at the intersection of East Capitol and Second streets.
Police do not believe the man was there to target any members of Congress.
“The subject has a criminal history over the past ten years or so but nothing that, at this point, would link him to anything here at the capitol,” said Capitol Police Chief Tom Manger said in a news conference Sunday morning.
The man has not been identified to the public.
