Gunshots fired near US Capitol; no link to terrorism seen
WASHINGTON (MCT) — A shooting near the U.S. Capitol on Thursday was an “isolated incident” and officials have “no information that this is related to terrorism,” Capitol Police Chief Kim Dine told reporters.
The incident appears to have begun when a car, driven by a woman who has not yet been identified, hit a security barricade on Pennsylvania Avenue near the White House, Dine said. The post is the outer perimeter of the multiple security barriers that protect the White House complex.
The woman, who had a child in the car, then drove toward the Capitol with police in pursuit, Dine said.
