US Capitol Police have identified the man who crashed his car into a barrier near the US congressional complex and began firing into the air before killing himself.

“It is still not clear why he chose to drive to the Capitol Complex,”警方在一份声明中说 陈述.

Mr York drove his car into a barrier at East Capitol Street and Second Street. The car “became engulfed in flames” while he was exiting the vehicle, 警方说.

He then discharged his gun multiple times into the air, prompting Capitol Police officers to respond.

Officers “were approaching the man when he shot himself,”声明说. No one else was harmed in the incident.

“At this time, it does not appear the man was targeting any Members of Congress, who are on recess, and it does not appear officers fired their weapons,” police said earlier on Sunday.

The incident is under investigation by the Washington Metropolitan Police Department.
