The United States Capitol was placed on lockdown following reports of shots fired in the vicinity of the chamber. A Capitol Police officer was injured.

The FBI was responding to the scene. A message from the Capitol Police ordered anyone in a House office to "shelter in place."

"Close, lock and stay away from external doors and windows," the message said.

The House recessed, and the Senate went into a quorum call — dispensing momentarily with its official business — shortly thereafter.

Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill tweeted: Shots fired outside the Capitol. We are in temporary lock down.

Yes - apparently a woman led police on a high-speed chase ending with "shots fired" and the woman dead. The YOUNG CHILD with her supposedly is uninjured:

I hope this wasn't some woman who had a medical problem which resulted in ramming barricades and driving around wildly. The above article says she was shot while exiting her vehicle. No mention was made of her having any weapon or firing at police. I hope the resulting fatality wasn't a result of trigger-happy police.

At least they didn't shoot the kid.

Amen.

The thing that really WORRIES me is, POLICE are ORDERING in essence martial law, and everyone abides by it without question.

When did we Americans become the cowards we are, close your doors, lock yourself in, doesnt anyone else see the danger in this logic?

Why didnt the police just setup roadblocks, and wait for her to come to them?

oh also how did this JUST happen to happen the same day as they were running training events there? IS it a coincidence?

The more recent news reports say they had her blocked in (they thought) at least twice, and she plowed through barriers, cars, and hit a secret service agent. I saw a replay of part of it and she was zooming around like a nut. All of this with a one year-old in the car. Also, it appears that they shot and killed an unarmed woman.

The Braves better start hitting....

Its really weird this happens during an drill called DC shield. But why didnt they just shoot her tires? Then taze her?

icyman61 commented on Friday, Oct 04, 2013 at 11:40 AM

Oh also witnesses are saying they pulled baby from car, then shot mom! Why did they kill her? Also a couple of witnesses are saying she got out of car later, youtube it!

sebekm commented on Friday, Oct 04, 2013 at 11:59 AM

That report was erroneous and makes no sense. The current version goes like this:

"Miriam Carey, a dental hygienist from Stamford, Conn., was identified as the driver of the black luxury sedan that first rammed a barrier at the White House, then sped to Capitol Hill, defying attempts by armed police to stop her Thursday afternoon. She was shot and killed fleeing her car near the Hart Senate Office Building

"Afterward, police discovered Carey's 1-year-old daughter was in the backseat of her black Infiniti throughout the ordeal. The child, who was not injured, was taken to a hospital for a precaution and placed in protective custody."

See: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/na...

Apparently the woman had significant "mental issues." I think the police could have handled it better, but in today's world with armed gunman blasting away where you least expect it, it's not surprising the police might be a little twitchy. But I would really be surprised if somebody didn't get fired - as well as charged - because of this if the woman was unarmed. Once she gets out of the car, I would think cooler heads in LE should prevail and they must verify she is really a threat to them before they shoot her down.

...the above usatoday.com link has been updated with a new headline and this revelation:

"The 34-year-old Connecticut woman who was shot and killed by police after a harrowing high-speed chase from the White House to Capitol Hill was delusional, believing that President Obama was communicating with her, a federal law enforcement official said Friday."

Sebekm, you need to WATCH the youtube vidoes, the report may not make since but you can see it for yourself, If some unknown stranger hasnt said the video is in violation of copyright infringments. Ill find it but you can look too on you tube, evidently the whole scene was well documented by passerbys, much to the disliking of the police there.

icyman61 commented on Friday, Oct 04, 2013 at 22:09 PM

Im looking for links found one you should read, friends and other people have no idea why they shot her, then demonized her afterwords. They are slandering her saying meds were found, so they can justify killing an unarmed woman for being scared when someone points a gun at their head. The average citizen would frreak out, I didnt as I told you about my incident at the border. Who knows maybe they wanted to kill me too?

icyman61 commented on Friday, Oct 04, 2013 at 22:43 PM

As I have said countless times before, dont LISTEN to the OFFICIAL STORY DIG<DIG< DIG you will find the media and government lying to us consistantly. Here is one video of an eyewitness saying the child was removed from the car, then the police "really let loose the gunfire" so they excecuted the weaponless woman.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGHzE9...

Yet they have tried to demonize her, call her a terrorist at first, then say they found meds, but all her family and friends say thats a lie.

It appears she was a scared mother who got emotional, and ran scared, they gunned her down. Is the the tactics police are going to utilize in the future?

icyman61 commented on Friday, Oct 04, 2013 at 23:18 PM

Ok the woman killed in DC was first supposed to run the barrier, slaming into it, yet when you see her car in videos there is no damage to it, why?

The airbag in her car isnt deployed either, why?

Why is the DC policeman RAMMING the barrier here with code lights on, and siren blaring? His airbag deployed and everything!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ao3617...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGHzE9...

Then the police supposedly found a baby AFTER they killed the mother, WHY do the witnesses say otherwise?

The witnesses are saying they pulled the baby from the car, then killed her mother, FOLKS we have a SANTIONED KILLING here, or at least it appears that way.

You also see the media making reports she was on meds, so what, police officers are trained to contain the situation with minimum force, so why kill her?

I know most Police Officers out their have good motives, but some are being manipulated by evil people, to shoot first at an unarmed woman with a baby in the car, our country is getting sadder every day, yet no one even listens to eyewitnesses, why?

What is happening in America, authorities shoot first then make up the official story later as people ask questions?

We need to ask these questions keep digging!

You might be their NEXT CRIMINAL or at least the one the COMPUTER tells them to get, it sounds surreal, but its REAL!

I watched the videos. I think the "official" version of events is more likely - but I'll wait until the investigation is complete.
