A Capital One bank branch just down the street from the headquarters of the FBI was robbed Friday morning, police say.

The robbery happened at the Capital One at 701 Pennsylvania Ave. NW in downtown Washington, just steps from the J. Edgar Hoover Building.

An FBI spokesperson says that their personnel, as well as MPD and Metro Transit Police officers, have responded to the scene.

This is a developing story. More to come.
