Chaos is erupting in the Capitol Building as police officers whip out guns while rioters supporting President Donald Trump storm the building.

HuffPost’s Matt Fuller tweeted that guns have been drawn in the chamber as hundreds of rioters storm the Capitol, tearing down four layers of security fencing and breaching the building.

Meanwhile other rioters engaged in an all-out brawl with police as officers struggle to keep up with the mass rioting.

The Madison building on Capitol Hill was evacuated minutes after the breach, Politico reporter Melanie Zanona said on Twitter. Zanona followed her tweet up noting the Capitol is on complete lockdown and tear has has been dispersed after those on the floor of the House were told to “get down on your chairs if necessary.”

Other videos posted to Twitter shows a small group of rioters, some donned in red “Make America Great Again” hats, standing together as one protester begins spraying a fire extinguisher in the building as smoke billows up.
