U.S. Capitol Police gave the all-clear after the Capitol was evacuated Wednesday evening over an airplane posing a “probable threat.”

Authorities ordered an evacuation of the Capitol, the Library of Congress, the Botanic Garden, and the surrounding House and Senate office buildings.

The plane, which circled the D.C. area, carried a U.S. Army parachute team for the Washington Nationals baseball game, according to Flightradar24.

“It appears that someone forgot to tell USCP, triggering tonight’s evacuation order,” Politico reporter Andrew Desiderio noted.

DC sports reporter Olivia Garvey tweeted a video of the parachute team coming down over Nationals stadium.

Capitol Police said more details about the incident will be forthcoming.
