Hundreds of pro-Trump rioters remained on the grounds of the Capitol following Washington DC's 6pm curfew, though NPR reports the atmosphere was "relatively quiet." Thirty people were arrested Wednesday night for violating the curfew, PBS reports. Fifteen others were arrested Tuesday and Wednesday in relation to protest activity, on charges including weapons possession and assault.

One was the woman fatally shot inside the Capitol building; the other three experienced medical emergencies during the riot. Thirteen were taken to area hospitals.
