A person set himself on fire outside the United States Supreme Court building in Washington, DC on Friday, officials said.

The incident happened around 6:30 p.m. in the plaza in front of the building, Supreme Court spokeswoman Patricia McCabe said in a statement.

Supreme Court Police, United States Capitol Police and DC Police responded, and the person was airlifted to an area hospital.

No one else was injured, according to McCabe.

United States Capitol Police tweeted around 6:40 p.m. that a medical helicopter had just landed near the US Capitol for a “medical emergency”.

“It’s not a matter of public safety,” he said.

The helicopter left the area approximately 15 minutes later.

The area remains closed for further investigation, McCabe said.

The circumstances surrounding the incident remain unclear.
