The Republican National Committee headquarters and surrounding streets in the Capitol were closed Wednesday morning after the Republican National Committee offices received a package containing two vials of blood, “a Korean Bible” and two bags of ice, according to the United States Capitol Police.

Police spokeswoman Brianna Burch said officers responded to Republican headquarters, in the 300 block of First Street SE, around 7:45 a.m., and as of mid-morning they are still investigating the origin of the package.
