Washington, D.C., police announced Wednesday that rioting at the U.S. Capitol resulted in four deaths.
Rioters supporting President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol on Wednesday, forcing members of Congress to evacuate as they met to certify the results of the Electoral College vote.
Metropolitan Police Chief Robert J. Contee III said during a news conference that as of Wednesday evening, police had made at least 52 arrests, 47 of which were for curfew violations and unlawful entry. Twenty-six of the arrests were made on Capitol grounds.
Four were arrested for carrying pistols without licenses, he said, and one for carrying a prohibited weapon.
One woman was fatally shot by law enforcement. She has been identified as Air Force veteran and San Diego resident Ashli Babbit.
The police chief said there were three additional deaths.
