ABC-A man fatally shot himself after ramming his car into a security barricade at the Capitol early Sunday morning, police said.

U.S. Capitol Police said in an initial, brief statement that a man exited his vehicle after crashing it around 4 a.m., after which the vehicle “became engulfed in flames.”
