As hundreds of pro-Trump supporters stormed Capitol Hill in a chaotic fury Wednesday, videos across social media show Washington, D.C. police officers being injured during the clashes, APA reports citing Newsweek.

Following a speech from President Donald Trump, protesters clashed with officers, tore down multiple layers of barricades, broke windows, and stormed the Capitol building.

Photos and videos show protesters facing off against law enforcement, who used pepper spray and other riot gear to fend off the crowd. In some videos, officers left the scene with visible injuries.
