Supporters of President Donald Trump who stormed and invaded the Capitol on Wednesday reportedly intended to find and execute Vice President Mike Pence. 

Reuters News Pictures Editor Jim Bourg revealed in a Twitter post that he heard “at least 3 different rioters at the Capitol say they hoped to find Vice President Mike Pence and execute him by hanging him from a Capitol Hill tree as a traitor.”

A Twitter user later responded to the report, sharing a video of rioters chanting, “Hang Mike Pence!”

Other photographs posted to Twitter show members of the mob with zip-ties, generally used as restraints by police, and gallows being constructed outside of the Capitol:
