Officials have declared the inside of the U.S. Capitol secure almost four hours after violent pro-Trump protestors disrupted the electoral college count.
Police used tear gas and percussion grenades to break up the crowd, shortly before the 6 p.m. EST curfew came into effect.
It’s reported hundreds of pro-Donald Trump supporters breached the Capitol’s security and entered as Congress was debating challenges to President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College win.
The scene shows police loading rioters into vans secured by zip-tied handcuffs. There is no word yet on any formal charges.
One woman was shot on the grounds of the building and has since died from her wounds.
