The U.S. Capitol complex was in lockdown on Friday afternoon after a vehicle attempted to ram into a barrier, leaving two police officers and the suspect injured, Capitol Police said in a statement.

Two law enforcement officials told NBC News that after striking two Capitol Police officers, the driver jumped out of the car with a knife and was shot by Capitol police.

The suspect is in custody, and has been transported to the hospital, as have the two injured officers, officials said.

The attempted breach happened at the north barricade vehicle access point.

Congress is in spring recess for the week, so lawmakers had turned home and were not working in the building.

Outrage is warranted. But outrage unaccompanied by analysis is a danger in itself.
