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.
not possible, they have very strict gun laws in DC, you can't have one. . ..
I know what the stinkin' 2nd Amendment is good for – toilet paper.
oh well....here we go......
Probably a muzzie!
.... Yep that aught to do it
...I thought the government was shut down...
It was only a matter of time. Geesh...
How is this possible, DC is a gun free zone?!!!!!
I hope no one is hurt but my first reaction was – what the heck do these congressmen expect.
Are you serious and everyone is acting like they're surprised. A man and his family were just attacked in a "road rage" incident. People's survival is at stake while the government acts like it's no big deal as long as their own pockets get filled and their own agendas get satisfied. Very sad that no one thought about the American who would just snap over it all. Way to go US government!!!
This political non-sense has stirred up the crazies
Great! One more reason for the House and Senate to go into recess! I hope they are all OK, but that they all poop their pants, out of fright!
Hmmmm... Looks like Americans are not to happy with what's going on in the capitol and are taking things into their own hands? Or some crazy nut job just being gun happy.
With the Democrats screaming jihad, is it any wonder that some nut has become energized?
Pity it wasn't Reid himself. What was it he said last night, "Who are they (They being the members of Congress he disagrees with) to decide what get's funded and what doesn't?" Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh they are the members of Congress. It's their job. What a putz. This country will be a much better place when Harry Reid ceases to exist.
"The House and Senate went into recess after the shooting. "
I wonder if Obama will use this opportunity to make a couple more recess appointments.
Who didn't see this coming?
Obviously a right-wing, left-wing, tea bagger, commy hippie, angry white redneck, black thug, muslim, christian, illegal alien, disgruntled government employee.
Provably a tea party supporter loosing his cool..
I hope no one was injured, especially NRA supporters and lobbyists and politicians who get donations from NRA and people with concealed guns who take them to church on Sundays in the family SUV.
I'm betting is was an AR-15 Shotgun
Someone wanted to make a statement about the government so bad they are willing to spend a long time in jail for it? Good riddance.
Tea Party violence
They DID ban guns in the CapitAl (And they are obviously banned in the CapitOl). However, congress overturned DC's gun ban.
Figured it wouldn't be too long before a US citizen had just had ENOUGH of this foolishness and decided to GO POSTAL
