Capitol Hill Shooting

From the AP via TPM:

WASHINGTON (AP) — A woman driving a black Infiniti with a young child inside tried to ram through a White House barricade Thursday, then led police on a chase toward the Capitol, where police shot and killed her, witnesses and officials said.Tourists watched the shooting unfold on Constitution Avenue outside the Capitol as lawmakers inside debated how to end a government shutdown. Police quickly locked down the entire complex temporarily, and both houses of Congress went into recess.

Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Tex., who said he was briefed by the Homeland Security Department, said the woman was killed. Asked if she was armed, he replied: “I don’t think she was. There was no return fire.”

Police described it as an isolated event and saw no indications of terrorism.

3 barks and woofs on “Capitol Hill Shooting

  1. I hope not but I heard on the tv machine that she might have been from Somalia. She may have mental health problems. Who knows?

  2. She was armed. She used her car as a weapon when she tried to run through barricades and hurt the Capitol police officer.
