A woman was shot in the Capitol on Wednesday after hundreds of President Donald Trump's supporters stormed the building and faced off with law enforcement, according to CNN.
CNN later reported that a woman had been shot in the chest and was in critical condition. PBS NewsHour confirmed this, citing one source, and added that the person who was struck by a bullet was not a uniformed officer.
MSNBC reported a law-enforcement officer fired the shot. The circumstances surrounding the shooting remained unclear in the immediate aftermath.
Michael Del Moro, a producer at MSNBC, shared photos of a person who looked like they were bleeding while being transported on a stretcher.
