Man Crashes Car Into Barriers Near Capitol, Kills Himself

A rather bizarre “attack” took place at the Capitol on Sunday.

A man reportedly drove his car into the barriers near the Capitol.

When he emerged from the vehicle, he opened fire, then turned the gun on himself.

Crazy Man

The driver of the car has since been identified as Richard A. York III, 29, of Delaware.

At around 4 a.m. EDT in Washington, D.C., he drove the sedan into the barrier at East Capitol and Second Streets.

His car soon became engulfed in flames.

York emerged from the vehicle, randomly firing his weapon into the air.

He then turned the weapons on himself and took his own life.

After the incident, the Capitol Police stated, “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.”

There is now an active investigation underway by the D.C. Metro Police.

GOP CHAIR TWEETS

Joe Biden knew the Chinese spy balloon was coming.

Tried to hide it from the American people.

Let it fly across the ENTIRE COUNTRY.

And only after the entire country begged him to act, our great military shot it down.

Embarrassing. Scary. Sad.

CHM @RepMcCaul: “The admin should have taken care of this before it became a national security threat. I hope we will be able to recover the wreckage to help determine what intelligence the CCP collected while its spy balloon was over our country for days https://www.forbes.com/sites/brianbushard/2023/02/04/chinese-spy-balloon-shot-down-biden-okd-downing-updates/

The DNC has decided to break a half-century precedent and cause chaos by altering their primary process, and ultimately abandoning millions of Americans in Iowa and New Hampshire.
