WASHINGTON (AP) — Police locked down the U.S. Capitol on Friday afternoon after a vehicle rammed into two Capitol police officers.

The driver was then shot, two law enforcement officials told The Associated Press. Capitol Police as the suspect is in custody.

The two officers who were hit are injured.

The officers and the suspect have been taken to a hospital. At least one officer was in serious condition, while the driver was in critical condition.

U.S. Capitol Police say all Capitol buildings were being locked down "due to an external security threat" and staff members were told they could not enter or exit the buildings.

"CRITICAL INCIDENT: USCP is responding to the North Barricade vehicle access point along (Constitution Avenue) for reports someone rammed a vehicle into two USCP officers," Capitol Police said in a tweet. "A suspect is in custody. Both officers are injured. All three have been transported to the hospital."

U.S. Capitol Police initially tweeted the location as Independence Avenue before tweeting out a correction that it was Constitution Avenue.

In response to the security threat, police have closed Constitution Avenue between Second Street NE and First Street NW, as well as First Street between Constitution Avenue NE and Independence Avenue SE.

A law enforcement official says officers were responding to a report of a possible shooting on a street near the Capitol complex. It wasn't immediately clear if anyone was injured.

The official could not discuss an ongoing investigation publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

According to NBC, a message was reportedly sent to congressional offices, "Due to … security threat located. All U.S. Capitol Campus Buildings, no entry or exit is permitted at this time. You may move throughout the building(s) but stay away from exterior windows and doors. If you are outside, seek cover."

This is a developing story.

I thought they all drove jacked up pickup trucks with Confederate flags in the back.

One officer has died due to his injuries.  I hope they keep the suspect alive so he can pay the ultimate penalty for the murder of a LEO.

Too late, they shot him as he came out of his car with a knife.  He's dead.
