Vehicle With Explosives Outside Library of Congress – Police Are Investigating – Supreme Court Vacated – Update: Man Surrenders to FBI

Washington DC Police are responding to a claim of an explosive device in a truck near the Library of Congress.

Negotiators were sent out to engage with a man in a truck.

Police are investigating.

Update: 49-year-old Floyd Ray Roseberry of North Carolina, surrendered himself to law enforcement.

ABC News reported:

The bomb threat suspect, 49-year-old Floyd Ray Roseberry of North Carolina, surrendered Thursday afternoon and is in police custody, Capitol Police Chief J. Thomas Manger said.

It’s still unclear if there were explosives in the truck, Manger said in an afternoon news conference.

Authorities tried to negotiate with Roseberry by writing messages on a whiteboard, Manger said. Authorities then used a robot to give the suspect a phone, but he wouldn’t use it, Manger said.

The suspect then exited his truck and surrendered without incident, Manger said.
