D.C. Police Department confirmed that the suspect surrendered and was taken into custody.

Capitol Police evacuated several government buildings in Washington, D.C. Thursday due to “an active bomb threat investigation.” 

Law enforcement officials said that a man, identified as Floyd Ray Roseberry, 49, by the AP,  drove a truck onto a sidewalk in front of the Library of Congress, claiming that he has explosives. Negotiators are reportedly in communication with the suspect and are hoping for a “peaceful resolution,” according to ABC News.   

In a tweet, Capitol Police said the investigation is ongoing, and they “are monitoring this situation closely and will update this account as we get information we can release.”
