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.
I guess people are getting tired and crazy with all of this crap going on!!
About time, thanks for the shooter for FINALLY DOING SOMETHING to our useless congress.
It has begun!!!!!!
Guns! Shutdown! Anarchy?!?!
Guess someone found out the ACA is not free!
That guy could have been at work today.
Look out WW III here we come. Funny never knew war would break out over healthcare ..... ?????
Boom goes the dynamite.
Shelter in place, talk amongst yourselves, and get something done.
Guess somebody is tired of the temper tantrums.
some teabagger didnt get paid
My care-meter has reached an all-time low
I hope no one was injured, especially NRA lobbyists and supporters.
Madness, sheer madness.
The rhetoric from both sides has been overwhelming. Is it any surprise some nutjob has decided to take matters into his own hands? Let's hope they catch him before he does any real damage.
Maybe we get lucky and some fresh new non corrupt (yet) politicians will be needed!
"The House and Senate went into recess after the shooting."
They've been in recess like a bunch of grade schoolers for months now. Time for some serious dodgeball. Let's see how fast the old men can run.
oh well, what do you expect?
If security was lighter because of the shutdown then this is all the GOP's fault.
This is no surprise. You cannot take money away from people and not expect this kind of fallout.
are you really suprised by this... I am surprised that it hasn't happened before this... the house and senate think that they own the country and can do as they want.. people are getting tired of being used and abused.. its time that they see what the people want and not what they think we want... wake up folks
When will folks learn that violence isn't the answer?
Not surprised. They better be thankful the police were not on furlough!
How long until CNN OR MSNBC OR NBC tries to pin this on a "crazy" "right winger?"
shots are fired.
