Officials increased security in and around the Maryland State House after Wednesday's riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Gov. Larry Hogan on Monday said additional security measures are in place at the State House as federal law enforcement are monitoring online threats of similar mob attacks on all 50 state capitols.

"We are taking additional security measures here at the State House complex, both the (Maryland) Capitol Police and the Maryland State Police. I have a security team briefing later this afternoon to talk about the situation in Maryland and our additional assistance in Washington," Hogan said.

Maryland's local jurisdictions are supplying mutual aid to the nation's capital. Maryland National Guard members have already seen their numbers and their mission expand in D.C., the governor explained.

"(We're) dealing with tons of security issues here in the state and in our nation's capital, and we're going to be continuing it, to work on that day and night between now and probably the inauguration," Hogan said.

Hogan said 500 guard members are currently in D.C. with more likely on the way, and he said he thinks the National Guard members in D.C. should be armed.

"I think we're going to be increasing several hundred more guard members after we finish our discussions," Hogan said. "I have a call this afternoon with (Virginia Gov. Ralph) Northam and (D.C. Mayor Muriel) Bowser to talk about coordination in the region. We're setting up a meeting with the FBI, who wants to brief me."
