Five people died and 52 others were arrested as supporters of President Donald Trump violently occupied the US Capitol.


Washington, DC, Police Chief Robert Contee said the dead on Wednesday included a woman who was shot by the US Capitol Police, as well as three others who died in “medical emergencies.”

Police said both law enforcement and Trump supporters deployed chemical irritants during the hours-long occupation of the Capitol building before it was cleared Wednesday evening by law enforcement.

DC police officials also say two pipe bombs were recovered, one outside the Democratic National Committee and one outside the Republican National Committee.

Police found a cooler from a vehicle that had a long gun and Molotov cocktail on Capitol grounds.
