Chaos erupts at Capitol as groups storm Congress

The U.S. Capitol is reportedly being evacuated and there are reports of shots being fired into the House chamber.

That comes as large protests rage outside and inside the Capitol. Some protesters managed to get inside.

During an earlier rally, President Trump urged supporters to march to the Capitol to protest what is going on inside.

Supporters of the President stormed Congress as they were in the process of certifying the results of the presidential election.

Vice President Mike Pence was escorted out of the Senate chamber and taken to a secure location. Earlier, Pence released a statement saying he does not have authority to take steps to overturn the election results. Pence said, “My oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not.”

Now, President Trump is asking his supporters to be peaceful. The President tweeted that the Capitol Police and Law Enforcement are truly on the side of the country. Trump told supporters earlier he would never concede because he won the election and said it was stolen from him.

Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser has ordered a citywide curfew from six tonight, to six tomorrow morning.
