In the USA, a man drove a car through a barricade near the Capitol and shot himself

In the US, a man drove a car through a barrier near the Capitol.

When the police rushed to meet him, the man first shot into the air, and then shot himself.

The Associated Press writes about it. The incident happened on Sunday, August 14. Richard A. York III, 29, of Delaware, crashed into a barricade near the Capitol, police said. After that, his car caught fire. Then the man started shooting in the air when the police approached – he shot himself.

Capitol Police Chief Tom Menger said the deceased had previous problems with the law. Law enforcement officers reject the possibility that the man wanted to attack the Capitol. The American police did not shoot the trespasser.

In the USA, the motives of the attack are established. It is likely that this may be related to searches of ex-president Trump.

We will remind, in the residence of the former US president in Florida, the FBI conducted searches this week and discovered as many as 11 packages of secret documents. The agency is investigating whether the politician legally removed them from the White House after his term ended.
