A woman is in critical condition after being shot in the chest on Capitol grounds during Wednesday’s protest in Washington D.C., according to CNN.

The woman was trying to breach the doors inside the U.S. Capitol when she was shot by Capitol Police, according to reports.

She was brought out of the building on a stretcher and transported to a hospital.

The exact circumstances surrounding the shooting are unclear.

The United States Capitol devolved into dangerous chaos Wednesday afternoon as Trump supporters stormed into some of the most restricted areas outside and inside the building, while members of Congress were placed under a lockdown. The day’s business, a ceremonial counting of the Electoral College, was halted as members of Congress sheltered in place.
