Police in Washington, D.C. have found a suspicious cylinder on a street near the U.S. Capitol building and are trying to determine what it is.

Officials say the device was loaded Thursday into a specialized truck operated by a bomb squad and taken to a site outside Washington for investigation. A police statement offered no other details.

Roads around the Capitol building were closed after the device was found.
