Pro-Trump protesters force US Capitol into lockdown as Congress meets to certify 2020 election results
Pro-Trump protesters entered the Capitol building and engaged with riot police as Congress held a joint session to count the Electoral College votes which would clear the path to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration later this month. One person was shot amid the melee, according to The Associated Press and NBC News. The Senate recessed its Electoral College debate on Wednesday afternoon after protesters outside of the Capitol building forced a lockdown. Vice President Mike Pence was evacuated from the building.
