Capitol Lockdown Lifted

Washington News Radio on the scene

The lockdown of the U.S. Capitol building has been lifted.

Local radio news outlets are reporting a female suspect tried to ram one of the White House gates with her car.

She then fled in her car to the streets near the U.S. Capitol, where authorities shot and killed her, according to news outlets WNEW and WTOP.

The incident comes some two weeks after the shooting at the nearby Navy Yard.
