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.
new term: 'going federal'
Lockdown vs shutdown which is worse
GOP there duck!
What they are doing is treason, Is that not punishable by death?
I think police fired the shots.
In a strange twist of events....Congress meets the real world the rest of us Americans live in.
The congress should be locked up, not locked down.
because guns walk the streets and shoot all by themselves
Well I know atleast 800,000 persons that are unhappy with them...
Guess no one thought this could happen. Sham, Shame on YOU!
We rarely have these incidents in Canada because we have gun control. But GOD FORBID the US adopt that.
Fine then. Keep watching innocent people die.
Hopefully it was that raging Boehner...
Apparently someone had enough of the shutdown.
What happen when see your child playing with a knife?. You take the knife away before them or someone else gets hurt. The goverment needs to take.the guns away.before more ppl get hurt.
terrorism starts here and exported worldwide
Bo is has turned this country into the congo.
"When will this country introduce a shutdown of GUNS" ~ seriously??? This was done in GUN FREE DC in a GUN FREE ZONE. Guns are illegal where this happened ... and where MOST shootings take place. Do you not see the ignorance in this statement?
Exercise your 2nd Amendment right where it was rectified.
But hey...you can't have a gun in DC....what's wrong with you! It's ILLEGAL right?! RIGHT?! Laws stop bad peole, right?
Guess the Republicans and Democrats have had enough of each other . . . good thing guns don't kill people . . .
But, isnt there a no gun law in DC?I see that is not going over well. Glad the person is ok. I bet he or she wouldn't be injured if they had a gun on them.as you see criminals dont care if there is a no gun law or not they will still have the guns. What do we use to protect ourselves? A bat isnt going to work if the person has a gun.
hate to see anyone hurt but making the politicians dance like in the old cowboy movies would be appropriate...
bet it wasn't a democrat.
Yup, time to give everyone a musket, a bible and nascar tickets.
Take back our country? You going back to europe? As you may or may not recall, us proud folks told another nation of proud folks already here to GTFO.
We're a joke wrapped in revisionist history.
Things seem to be reaching the boiling point in DC. Is the shooter(s) a patriot out to get a Tea Party obstructionist? Is the culprit(s) a member of the Tea Party out to make a statement of some kind? A random psychotic? It only makes sense that irrational, self-destructive thinking that makes a law of the land open to debate- possibly impacting the economy by a small minority-makes our democracy a joke at home and around the world. America has become what we have criticized other countries for decades: a banana republic. Maybe only God can help America now or, as the old saying goes, maybe we can help ourselves. If a million people marched on the Capitol demanding an end to this shutdown, the shutdown would end. And if it didn't? Revolutions are made of such situations.
