U.S. Capitol Police have locked down all buildings within the U.S. Capitol complex as far-right demonstrations enter the Capitol building and continue to clash with police.
Police have alerted individuals to shelter in place, citing a "security threat inside the building." Staff have been urged to move inside offices, hide and lock external doors and windows.
House lawmakers are now being evacuated from the House floor. According to pool reporters, "banging" on the doors of the House floor by protesters is audible.
