Earlier this afternoon The United States Capitol had to be placed on lockdown, while Secret Service & local police tangled with a yet-to-be-identified woman who allegedly attempted to ram her Infiniti Coupe thru White House barricades. Multiple news sources are reporting that the woman, who also had her toddler in the car, was shot & killed after a 12 Block High Speed Chase.
According to CNN, the suspect allegedly got into some sort of verbal altercation with officers at a security checkpoint near the White House. The woman is said to have sped off, once additional officers arrived on the scene. At some point, the Infiniti was cornered-but the driver was not gonna lose easily. Sources say that she then blasted in reverse, and demolished a police cruiser, before fleeing the scene. Approximately 30 minutes later, the driver was said to have been killed by police gunfire. The child is said to be okay. No name or motive has been released, as of 4:48pm Central Time. One officer was injured, and had to be air-lifted to the nearest hospital. Hopefully we can add on to this story later. Wow.
