U.S. Capitol Police stated Tuesday that roads were closed around Supreme Court because they are investigating a vehicle which was left in front.

According to police tweets, people are advised not to go into the vicinity.

A large police presence with dozens and even more officers was evident at the Supreme Court’s second term. For the first time, justices attended the courtroom to hear in-person arguments since March 2020’s outbreak of coronavirus.

The oral arguments started on time at 10:10 a.m. ET.
