Apparently a car chase that started at the White House gates. Female driver, kid in the car. Some news outlets claim she died from wounds from the shootout, others say she's in custody.

So, this is how it ended: An investigation is under way after a police chase through the heart of Washington DC ended with a woman driver shot dead and two officers injured.

Re: US Capitol On Lockdown After 'Shots Fired'

Sorry I cannot figure out which site I was on this morning that has more info to share it. Will post link later if I find it.

The woman has been identified and named in some news outlets as a 34-year old black woman from Stamford, Connecticut. She was apparently suffering from postpartum depression and had been hospitalized for it last year. The child is a little over a year old and has been taken into protective custody, unharmed. The woman died from gunshot wounds a few hours after the incident. She did not have a weapon and fire at officers, as was previously reported. She did back into a cop car as she fled, which likely led to the cops thinking she was trying to use her car as a ram/weapon (and thus why they fired their weapons on her).

Here's footage of the one officer being injured (from crashing his car en route to the scene)

2021 incident:
Single car driver attacked Capitol police officers. One police officer killed.
Attacker also dead.

no more info yet.
"Shortly after 13:00 local time (18:00 GMT) the Capitol Police alert system sent an email to lawmakers and their staff ordering them to stay away from exterior windows and doors due to a threat. Anyone outside was instructed to seek cover.

At that time, a man driving a blue sedan had rammed the car into two officers standing at the North Barricade, according to police.

He exited the vehicle and ran towards the officers - at least one of whom drew a weapon and shot the suspect. The officers were then transported to hospital, one in an ambulance and one in a police cruiser."
