Vehicle rammed into police officers near US Capitol.

The driver who rammed officers near US Capitol is dead while one police officer also lost his life Friday after he and a colleague were rammed by a vehicle near the US Capitol, less than three months after the Congress was stormed by a far-right mob, police said.

"One of our officers has succumbed to his injuries," Yogananda Pittman, acting chief of US Capitol Police, told a news conference.

She confirmed that the suspect had also been pronounced dead following the attack.
