Sources tell WNEW Senior Correspondent Mark Segraves that the suspect, an unarmed 34-year-old Connecticut woman, was shot and killed by police.
Dine says a child was also in the car. Segraves says the child was between 12 and 18 months old and was injured, though the extent of the injuries are unknown.
The suspect has a history of mental illness issues, according to WUSA. The chase began, CNN noted, when the woman fled an altercation with officers 12 blocks away from the final crash site.
Witness Travis Gilbert said several police cars chased the black sedan at high speed toward the Capitol.
“They ran all the red lights. It was a very dangerous situation,” Gilbert said.
All the shooting appears to have been done by police; law enforcement sources said the suspect did not shoot a gun and there is no indication that she had one.
A U.S. official said there was no apparent connection to terrorism.
Note: The Police escorted her with lights so that there was no chance her trip could be interupted.
Reps. Gerald Connolly and Matthew Cartwright were having a conversation on the balcony outside the House chamber when they heard two bursts of about seven or eight rounds.
Note: No gun found no shots returned. Gee fella’s you had to discharge some of that government bought billion rounds. This is good training for other women and babies you’ll be shooting soon enough. Like Ducks in a barrel huh boys?
