FBI releases photos of persons of interest in Capitol riots

The FBI is looking for the public's help identifying people involved in Wednesday's siege of the U.S. Capitol.

WASHINGTON — In a last-ditch attempt to fight the results of the 2020 election, rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol Wednesday, breaching all police forces and occupying the building. One woman was shot and killed during the riots, a Capitol Police officer died from injuries sustained during the riots and three others died from medical emergencies, according to police. 

D.C. Police have already released a number of images from the Capitol riot asking for the public's help identifying people wanted for unlawful entry into the Capitol building.
