Suspect surrendered after 5-hour standoff without blowing up the Library of Congress
A white man who offered money to schoolgirls and threatened to blow up a truck in front of the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, voluntarily surrendered to police without resistance.
It all began with the fact that a man identified as 49-year-old Floyd Ray Roseberry, from Cleveland County, drove onto the sidewalk in front of the Library of Congress. Then he got out of the car with a wad of money and offered it to two schoolgirls, warning that they should call the police.
When Capitol police discovered the bomber, law enforcement officers cordoned off the area and attempted to contact Roseberry. The suspect refused to communicate with the police, holding an object that looked like a detonator in his hands.
Roseberry has been streaming live on Facebook, spewing anti-government slogans.
Roseberry's motives remain unknown, although after a search of the car, the police did not report any explosives, and only indicated the presence of a propane gas cylinder.
