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.
A car backfiring or a govt worker upset
Not possible! Guns are illegal in DC!
It was originally thought to be another liberal shooter, but it has been determined there are no schools or shopping malls in the area, and the possibility has been eliminated.
Republicans had better tread lightly. If they continue to hurt the country people are going to realize who's really the cause of the shut down. This shooting is only the beginning.
Wondering if this expresses the 'voice of the People' (gunslinger style), or a Wingnut, or T-party fanatic (sorry, redundant), or 'just a coincidence'). Maybe someone now unemployed? Either way, a good excuse for Congress to go back on break.
I wonder if cops will just sit in the parking lot, and wait for the shooter to finish what he's doing. You know.... they way they do when it's an elementary school being shot up...
Probably just the beginning of a civil war! Pretty much what happened to the Roman Empire when it imploded.
Ok.. Let's see how many Americans killed by so-called terrorism and how many killed by good old blue-eyed white Americans in the past month? But where is the most of the money being spent to fight "terrorists" or fix things at home?
Americans are so brainwashed that they don't seem to realize that they are being taken for a ride and they don't even know it. Pathetic...
90% of American support the 2nd amendment
What did they expect to happen? Plain and simple...... We The People Have Had Enough!
I do not condone violence in any form, but, there is always someone out there that does! Such a sorry state of affairs! OUR country is no longer OURS!!
Hope it was a GOP on GOP shooting
this isn't going to make them go faster
How can this be? Guns are illegal in D.C.
Probably some teabagger trying to take back his country.
TGOPers frothing at the mouth + guns = bad combination.
this is awful. can people refrain from blaming it on obama, harry reid, john boehner, or the tea party? no one did is at fault for this except the shooter.
Yep, DC is a gun free zone. See how well that works for them?
Just tell me T cruz was hit
Could that be that maybe some people are just getting of sick of these morons collecting a paycheck while sinking this country further down the tubes?
Did somebody snap?
probably testing how well ACA plan works for the vicitm
Finally, a rational reason for a government shutdown: active shooter on the loose.
The t-baggies are coming!
Must be a Democrat.
This is tragic. What is happening to our country? We need some normalcy amd stability from our government. And we must tackle our problems with both parties sitting down and reaching compromises!
