Capitol Hill Scare: Police Provide Further Details; Child Confirmed On The Scene

Filed under: PolitikViolence

car chase(1)

Thursday afternoon, Capitol police held a press conference to address the incident at Capitol Hill.

After giving their conference, we now know the following:

This afternoon there was a suspicious vehicle that attempted to pass a barricade at the White House to drive onto the lawn. Realizing something was wrong, the vehicle was then attempted to be stopped by the Secret Service. Shots were fired, and as SS continued to pursue the vehicle, the suspect then struck one of the police cars before crashing into the barricade.

As an act of caution, law enforcement put surrounding buildings on lockdown — those of which have now been released.

As far as the suspect, they can confirm that the suspect was female but can not attest to her current condition. They also believe there was a child present, and they believe the child is fine.

Capitol police then confirmed the police officer that was believed to have been shot in the situation was actually struck by the car. Fortunately, he appears to be conscious and breathing.

What caused this? So far, there is nothing to link this to terrorism. This is an isolated incident, they believe, but they are still collecting more facts before they release further information.

Capitol Hill Scare: Female Suspect Reportedly Rammed Barricade At White House, Details Below

Filed under: Violence

car chase

Thursday afternoon saw quite the scare in the Capitol, as gunfire erupted, causing a swarm of emergency respondents to appear in the area and address the emergency that locked down Congress.

While details were scarce before, we're now learning that the Secret Service says the female suspect slammed into a gate on the south side of White House, and then she fled to the Capitol.

She was initially pursued for suspicious driving, and as her move to the White House became apparent, the Secret Service got involved and she was then reportedly pursued by them.

Amidst this, police also enacted force as she got closer to the White House. And this is where the presumed shots were fired. As news got to the Capitol, it is believed that's when the lockdown was presumably enacted.

So far, there was one injury to a police officer reported, though no further details are available at this time.

House and Senate sessions were immediately suspended. Stay tuned for more updates.
