US Capitol Police said they are investigating a suspicious vehicle in front of the US Supreme Court where the nine justices are hearing oral arguments.
“We are investigating a suspicious vehicle in front of the Supreme Court along First Street, NE,” the department said in a Twitter statement.
“Please stay away from the area.
We will provide more information as soon as we can.”
The nine justices began their new term on Monday with their first oral arguments in person in 19 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Law enforcement authorities have been on high alert in the US capital since a January 6 riot by supporters of then-president Donald Trump.
In August, a man who claimed to have a bomb in a pick-up truck near the US Capitol surrendered to police after a stand-off that paralysed a swath of Washington DC for more than five hours.
