A number of buildings on Capitol Hill Win Washington DC have been evacuated after Police continue to negotiate with a man in a pickup truck threatening to detonate explosives near the site.
The majority of the area has been cordoned off as Police and FBI agents investigate the truck and the threat.
“This is an active bomb threat investigation,” the US Capitol Police said.
A man, who is believed to be the suspect, took to Facebook Live to announce a series of threats and asking to speak to President Joe Biden.
“I’m trying to get Joe Biden on the phone. I’m parked up here on the sidewalk right beside all this pretty stuff,” the man said.
“I’m telling you, them snipers come in, they start shooting this window out, this bomb’s going off,” he said.
An evacuation order of nearby buildings was ordered, as Police and FBI agents continue to be in negotiations with the man.
