WASHINGTON, DC — At least one person was shot Wednesday amid violence at the U.S. Capitol as dozens of supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the building and clashed with police.

A source familiar with the situation said DC Fire EMS were transporting a woman in critical condition to a local hospital.

The exact circumstances surrounding the shooting and the condition of the victim were unclear as of 12:45 p.m. PST.

The shooting came as dozens of Trump supporters breached security perimeters and entered the U.S. Capitol as Congress was meeting, expected to vote and affirm Joe Biden’s presidential win.

President Trump has riled up his supporters by falsely claiming widespread voter fraud to explain his loss. He has issued some tweets amid the violence but has not called on protesters to leave.

The Department of Homeland Security is sending additional federal agents to the U.S. Capitol to help quell violence from supporters of President  Trump. They were seen fighting with officers both inside the building and outside.

A spokesperson told The Associated Press on Wednesday that officers from the Federal Protective Service and U.S. Secret Service agents are being sent to the scene. He says they were requested to assist by U.S. Capitol Police.
