CBS News reports:
In addition to the shooting, one woman and two men died “around the Capitol grounds” after suffering “separate medical emergencies,” Metropolitan Police Chief Robert Contee said. Contee did not identify any of the deceased or provide further information on the medical issues that lead to their deaths.
The shooting occurred after violent supporters of President Trump breached the U.S. Capitol as a joint session of Congress to count the electoral votes and affirm President-elect Joe Biden’s win was underway.
The Capitol complex was locked down and lawmakers were evacuated, halting the count after only two states had been completed. Troops from the Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. National Guard were deployed to help quell the violence.
DC Police interim chief Robert J. Contee III said four people died as a result of the protest at the Capitol. https://t.co/RafgGSxsk7
