By Oviri Kelvin
US police have launched an investigation to unravel the identity of a gunman who committed suicide at the barricade in the US Capitol building.
According to reports by the Capitol Police, the human drove his car towards the barricade at the US Capitol building where he shot some rounds into the air before shooting himself.
Although nobody was hurt in the incident which included a scene of the car bursting into flames, Capitol police claimed that the gunman was targeting neither the members of Congress, who are on recess nor anyone.
“At this time, it does not appear the man was targeting any Members of Congress, who are on recess, and it does not appear officers fired their weapons,” Capitol Police said in a statement.
“Our investigators are looking into the man’s background.’
“When our officers heard the sound of gunfire, they immediately responded and were approaching the man when he shot himself,” the police authorities added.

Recall that in April 2021, a similar incident happened where a man drove into two Capitol police resulting in the death of an 18-year-old veteran.
Further reports about the incident reveal that many of the persons on Capitol Hill live in palpable fear after supporters of Donald Trump raved the building last year.
Many on Capitol Hill remain on edge after supporters of then-president Trump stormed the building on January 6 last year.
The man’s vehicle is said to have hit the barricade at East Capitol Street and Second Street before he fired several shots into the air on East Capitol Street.
The gunman, who was later pronounced dead, has not been identified
