District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser speaks during a news conference in Washington, Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2020. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)Bowser said that “persons” dissatisfied with the findings of State Boards of Elections and certification of the Electoral College votes can be expected to continue protesting violently through Biden’s inauguration. Robert J. Contee III, the city’s top cop, said during a press conference late Wednesday there have been at least 52 arrests – 47 because of curfew violations. By Thursday morning, that number had increased to include at least 70 unrest-related arrests. He said two pipe bombs were recovered earlier – one located outside the RNC and one outside the DNC. Police said they also found a cooler from a vehicle that had a long gun and Molotov cocktail on the Capitol grounds. At least six firearms were recovered, in addition to the three recovered last night, as well as, a stun gun, authorities said. Contee said there have been three additional deaths along with a woman who police confirmed had been shot by one of their officers.”One adult female and two adult males appear to have suffered from separate medical emergencies, which resulted in their deaths,” he added. At least 14 officers were also wounded during the demonstrations, according to authorities. Two officers were hospitalized, including one who sustained serious injuries after he was pulled into a crowd and assaulted, police said. Bowser ordered a citywide curfew for the District of Columbia from 6 p.m. on Wednesday until 6 a.m. on Thursday. Contee said officers will take anyone in violation of the curfew into custody.
