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.
They shooter must have had it with Congress.
I thought guns were illegal in DC??! No WAY this is true!!!! FALSE FLAG
Ummm, ok. I still cant afford food or my rent, soooo......
Welcome to your BO nation. People mass killing every month since 2008
Someone wants Obamacare really really bad.
Not to be cynical, but maybe they can work out a deal now?
I can't wait to see the details on this. Let the blame game begin.
The House and Senate went into recess after the shooting. You mean as always anyway???
When will this country introduce a shutdown of GUNS.
No surpirse there...
Well, it's not the right answer, but what do politicians expect when they sit on their high cushions bickering and we the people suffer due to their inability to cooperate with each other.
I thought DC was a gun free zone
I don't wish to make light of the situation at all, and my prayers go out to anyone who has been harmed or is currently in harms way. That said, does anyone know what an annunciator is?
only a matter of time some federal unpaid worker will go nuts and fire shots
Might this be related to the impasse in DC and that this is a disgruntled, possibly mentally unstable individual?
Great...The last thing we need.
well someone wants their money to support their family...
Betcha, they wish they had guns now!! Who is the OEC and USCP and why are they on the job!!?? Who's paying them?
Say, isn't the postal service impacted by the "government shut down"?
Yay, government shutdowns!
Guns are ILLEGAL in DC this story is fake!!! FALSE FLAG lulz – our federal gov't is so inept...and all you fools think Obamacare is going to work – yeah right, probably as well as the car and bank bailouts...worked well for everyone but the American people. Oh right, corporations are people too right??! Craziness. Our country is so screwed
I believe people are fed up.
