Emergency services received reports of a suspected pipe bomb outside both the Republican National Committee at 310 First Street Southeast and the Democratic National Committee at 430 South Capitol Street Southeast in Washington DC.

Both of these reports came in on January 6 as pro Trump rioters took to the streets outside Capitol Building to protest the 2020 Presidential election.

A group then forced entry to the Capitol Building, where a joint session in Congress was postponed, and law makers either evacuated or told to hide somewhere safe.

Four people died during the incident, including one police officer.
