DC mayor extends emergency order until after Inauguration Day as police confirm 4 fatalities amid US Capitol unrest

Washington, DC Police Chief Robert Contee confirmed on Wednesday night that a woman who died of a gunshot wound was actually shot by the US Capitol Police. In addition, three others died of undisclosed “medical emergencies” amid the chaos.

Police also recovered pipe bombs both at the RNC and the DNC offices, and found a long gun and Molotov cocktails inside a vehicle on Capitol grounds. In total, 52 people were detained in the unrest, many of them for curfew violations.
