Wild car chase ends with suspect shot to death near U.S. Capitol

,

Washington (CNN) - She had a 1-year-old child inside and apparently was unarmed.

Instead, the motorist's black Infiniti, according to authorities, itself became a weapon Thursday afternoon, first striking a security barrier and U.S. Secret Service officer near the White House before hurtling down some of the capital's most famous streets, police cruisers in pursuit.

Dramatic video taken minutes later near the U.S. Capitol showed the vehicle backing into a police vehicle before the chase resumed. Gunshots rang through the traffic circle. The motorist was shot by police just a few blocks away.

    Thank goodness. FBI is still working. I hope Ted Cruz is paying their salaries.

    This is on Cruz's head. He knew what he was pushing for would never go down. Yet he talked it up and promoted himself to the detriment of others as well as the nation. Texas, you really need to reconsider before you ever vote for this person again. He cares about himself. Not you. Not the nation.

    Given the example our elected leaders are setting, this is no surprise.

    Someone is probably upset about a much needed program on hold until the IDIOTS in DC get it together.

    Why isn't anyone talking about the black g37 that the police are searching out front? Why hasn't anyone said how many shots? 3? Or 50?

    We are living in bad times. I hope the injured person will recover and the shooter will be captured and brought to quick justice and that all others will remain sheltered and safe.

    It was only a matter of time, hope no one was hurt. But I would welcome the target being Ted Cruz.

    Neither gun laws or imaginary good-guys-with-guns will ever stop a crazy guy. Sorry to hear this is happening.

    Too bad he/she/they didn't get every member of the house and senate.... Okay, a bit morbid, but I think my point of disappointment with our gov't. has been made.
