New York: Four people died as supporters of United States President Donald Trump violently occupied the US Capitol.

Washington DC Police Chief Robert Contee said the dead on Wednesday included a woman who was shot by the US Capitol Police, as well as three others who died in "medical emergencies".

The protesters dispersed following the enforcement of curfew in the national capital.  

Mayor Bowser announced the curfew to prevent the situation from escalating.

Officials said the Capitol was secured, putting an end to nearly four-hour violent occupation by Trump supporters.  

Heavily armed police personnel were deployed to disperse the crowd.
