Law enforcement authorities in Washington Friday morning confirmed there has been an alert put out for the area – including Capitol Hill -- for a 199 Gray Honda CRV with Massachusetts license plates.
Officials would not immediately elaborate, or indicate if the alert might be related to events in Boston and the ongoing manhunt for one of the suspected Marathon bombers.
Meanwhile, in an apparent unrelated event, U.S. Capitol Police have evacuated the Capitol Visitors Center because of a reported suspicious package. That report is being investigated. The Capitol and congressional office buildings remain open.
