Woman Killed at Capitol After Pursuit from White House

Building was briefly in lockdown, two officers injured

A woman driving a black Infiniti sedan struck a security barricade outside the White House and fled to Capitol Hill on Thursday afternoon, where pursuing police shot and killed her. One officer was struck by her vehicle at the White House and another was injured in the course of the pursuit.

The driver was a “black adult female” and “is deceased as a result of her injuries sustained in the shooting,” the United States Secret Service said late Thursday. Her identity is “being withheld at this time, pending verification and notification of next of kin.”

A Capitol Police spokesperson said in a press conference following the incident that a one-year-old baby found in the car after the chase has been hospitalized. The only shots fired during the episode came from law enforcement and not the suspect, per the police spokesperson.

The car being driven by the suspect, a late-model black Infiniti, has Connecticut license plates. Police are searching a home in Stamford, Conn., in connection with the incident, per local media. Authorities are also planning to speak with the suspect’s sister in Brooklyn, N.Y., according to CNN.

A U.S. Capitol Police Officer injured in the incident was taken to MedStar Washington Hospital Center and later released.

The incident prompted a tense but brief lockdown of the Capitol building, where a chaotic scene unfolded after multiple people heard several gunshots. People ran frantically and officers swarmed as Capitol Police issued a “shelter in place” order for offices on the House side of the building.

“Close, lock and stay away from external doors and windows,” the police said in an emergency alert.

Rep. Bill Posey (R-Fla.), who was on the House balcony at the time, told Politico he heard “five or six” gunshots.

“Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom!” he said. “Then sirens went off, cops started going everywhere yelling ‘get inside, get inside!’”

Capitol Police Chief Kim Dine told reporters there’s no indication the episode was “related to terrorism.”

B.J. Campbell, 69, a tourist visiting from Portland, Ore., said he saw the black car drive past White House security. Officers began “banging on the car, yelling at her,” Campbell told TIME. One tried to use a bicycle rack to box in the vehicle, but the car spun around and rammed into the rack and hit the officer, who was not wearing a uniform. The officer, whom the Associated Press identified as a Secret Service agent, was knocked onto the hood of the car and rolled off onto the street, according to Campbell. However, another witness said the officer got up and did not appear to be injured.

“There was a lot of yelling at the driver to stop,” said Joe Brophy, the manager of a pedicab company, who saw the incident. The car sped off down Pennsylvania Avenue heading east, followed within 30 seconds by several police cars, according to witnesses.

There was a heavy police presence just west of the Capitol near the U.S. Botanical Garden, as tourists moved away from the Capitol. Secret Service was on high alert and Pennsylvania Avenue was closed off near the White House.

“The President was briefed on the reports of gunfire on Capitol Hill this afternoon,” a White House official said Thursday. “White House staff are in touch with law enforcement and monitoring the incident.”

The Senate Sergeant at Arms had also advised people on the Senate side of the building to shelter in place if in an office, or go to the nearest office if not. The House of Representatives, which had been in session when the shooting started, reconvened by approximately 3:30 p.m.

I'm so depressed about this story. We need to turn this country around and if that mean; we have to die for it. I will gladly give man life in war to get real men back in this country. It is time for a war and we need to stop laying down for all of this lady stuff. We need to be real hard men. To say stop Gay marriages. It is such a shame, for what america has become. I wish I had the power to bring that beautiful lady back to her baby. The President we have Obama is soft. We need warriors to become presidents.

pguill1964

I believe we have a babys mama Mr President, looking for her child support money. I seen that beautiful lady and that lady is not crazy. I'm not buying that. I believe some D&A needs to be collected. Now this equation add's up. Somebody's cover was about to be blown. Don't worry what done in the dark will manifest to the light. I pray God's strenth over the lady's family. I wish she would rise from the dead.

The Uninted States is getting to Soft, I need to get The president to hang out with me and the african lions. Laying down for Gay marriage and now one lady at the White House and they need a gun to take her down. Man I'm so depressed, I will have to take a pill. That really knock the win out of me.

You mean to tell me the secret service could not take down a lady; I thought these guys were pro'ssssssss. Think we are dealing with some Boy Scouts ; next time something like this happens at the White House . Give me a call, I could have handle that by myself with one hand tied behind my back. that bunch of Boy Scouts can just sit off to the side and take notes. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to say man I'm so disapointed. Cannot take down a lady and a baby. This is really sad. I think I will have to apply for a secret service job; so I can show these Boy Scouts a real man work. I'm up every morning eatting with african lions.

What really happened here that the media is refusing to tell the public the truth!? She was from connecticut,the state where the sandyhook incident supposedly took place! She rams a barricade and runs over a cop,come on! Something is going on here that is being hidden from the public! Maybe she had knowledge and evidence that sandyhook was indeed just a drill that obama and cronies used to stage a protest against our 2nd amendment! Maybe she was in dc to shakedown the shakedown king! All of the sheep will believe what the media puts out there for them! Where are all of the race baiters,after the shooting of an unarmed black again!!?? Looks like somebody,high up, wanted this women silenced!

Where is Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson? the woman was out of the car and UN-armed when she was shot. Why is no investigation taking place the media is going along with it. Its a shame

A few months ago, a confused young woman drove up our driveway by mistake.  She realized she didn't know where she was and tried to turn around in the narrowest part of the driveway.  This took her into our nice plantings.  I came out of the house as our gardener approached her, yelling at her to stop before she did more damage.  She panicked and fled the scene, taking out some nice bushes and almost unhinging our front gate.  I was angry, wished she had stopped and let us guide her out of the landscaping, but...wow, I'm sure glad there weren't any DC cops there. Or LAPD, for that matter.  Cops these days are just too trigger-happy.

I can not believe the ignorance and shortsightedness of... oh who am I kidding, of course I believe every word of the drivel that is spilled onto these pages by the ignorant.--- Hitting a human being with a car, believe it or not, would KILL them. That's right children. DEATH! :O from a CAR! When a person, drives a car at a police officer, with the intent to hit him or other people or other officers, that is called, repeat after me, DEADLY FORCE!. and now what can the Police Officer do??? He can and should use DEADLY FORCE! to protect himself and other people/officers!------- Class has been dismissed. And for extra credit, I think you naysayers should become police, so we can see how fast you'd get run over by somebody, or let a car in beyond barriers only to watch it  detonate and kill the president.

Please correct headline to read the below statement in capital letters, as it more accurately describes/explains the known truth about these "hearing/recognizing voices inside my head" phenomena when they appear to have happened to an otherwise perfectly normal citizen:


"ANOTHER TARGETED INDIVIDUAL (OR TI) SHOT TO DEATH BECAUSE S/HE WAS NOT ENLIGHTENED TO THE USE OF THE UBERSUREVEILLANCE ABILITIES (I. E. ELECTRONIC STALKING AND MIND CONTROL OR ESMC) UPON THIS COUNTRY'S CITIZENS"


Just do an online search using these words/phrases: Targeted Individual or TI, Electronic Stalking and Mind Control (ESMC), gang stalking, multi-stalking or multistalking or multiple stalking, organized stalking, revenge stalking, vigilante stalking, group stalking, baiting, brighting, gaslighting or to gaslight (someone) (named after the movie "Gaslight"), Orwellian surveillance (named after the movie "1984"), handler, misconduct, noise campaigns, psychotronics, street theater, swarming, mind reading, thought reading and any other associated words/phrases you can/may/will find along this journey into the misconduct of "the powers that be" within this country, and you'll eventually find grains of the truth out there some where, which you can then assemble into the complete knowledge/truth in regard(s) to these phenomena because for so many people to be having the exact same supposed [delusional] auditory "hallucination(s)" is a preposterous notion...


However, beware not to be mislead down a thousand redundant avenues/tangents (blog(s)/site(s)) of conspiracy theories and other disinformational/misdirectional kinds of BS being proffered by those entity(ies)/person(s)/power(s) whom would have an interest in doing so because those errant kinds of supposed "leads" can/may/will only draw you into ongoing frustration(s) in an effort to get you to give up all together on the hopes of ever learning/obtaining the real knowledge/truth about these phenomena.

Deadly force is justified only under conditions of necessity and may be used only when lesser means cannot be reasonably employed or have failed and the risk of death or serious bodily harm to innocent persons is not increased by its use. I do not think it was justified for two reasons
1. The risk of death or serious bodily harm  to innocent persons was increased by their use of deadly force being that that  a child was in the car.
2.It looked like  She was driving away when they opened fire. There for deadly force is no longer justified. The deadly force triangle is intent, opportunity, capability when she started to drive away, they no-longer had a full triangle. this is because she no-longer had intent.

  • Amazing that someone can be killed for hitting a barricade.  Are we Russia or China now?
  • Only fair to have signs stating if you pass this check point, you would be shot !
  • Did she try to kill someone from capitol hill?
  • Watch the video, when she took the round about, missed opportunity by the officers to block on the exit of the round about!
  • I'm curious when they discovered there was a child in the car?
  • D.C. traffic is awful, perhaps more intelligence, patience is needed. Then they could have simply blocked her in again?
  • Did she not say anything back to the officers?  Nothing?

    That's just simply murder!! they had many , many options besides shooting a woman that clearly never presented a weapon, doesn't matter what spin they put on it, the police officers that started shooting an unarmed women need to answer for what just happened... I thought we where suppose to be setting an example for other countries?

    police should be arrested and held accountable for child endangerment, period. There is no possible way the DIDN'T see a child in that car and yet they still chose to fire into the car. MURDERS.

    .... Woman Killed at Capitol After Pursuit from White House .... 


    Even the Keystones musta known she was nuts, after seeing her running from the looters and squanderers of Several Trillions of Dollars -- and counting.

    People are running for shelter and taking cover, but from whom? The only persons I see as a threat with big guns shooting are the cops. I can honestly see why the lady took off in her vehicle. She had guns drawn on her with her kid in the car. Maybe she was afraid and panicked. Who kills a woman with her child watching. These officers are out of control killing women dead in the street without thinking.

    A great example of how the courts should NOT PRESUME that all mothers are fit to have custody of their children. 

    By the way, what's up with the daughter now?  They know who the father is.  They should AUTOMATICALLY be taking the child to him.  He has a Constitutional right to her care.  But, protective services also likes to make $$$$ off of taking children from biological parents.

    As most comments say non-lethal force with appropriate equipment ALWAYS should be an option.  Just to show how out of touch Congress is they thanked and lauded heroics by Capitol Police BUT NEVER MENTIONED THAT THEY ARE NOT BEING PAID.

    How can it be? What is it with the Capitol Police? A sad testimony for this once great country. I am deeply mourning the mother of the little boy and for him. Anyone who shoots to kill in this context (rather than disabling the alleged perpetrator through other means) is NOT FIT to serve in the Capitol Police of the USA. 

    By the way, I am from Germany and live in the US and that is my honest opinion.

    Unarmed woman in DC, a place known for its crime, with her 1 year old son. 

    What else is known? A man, WITHOUT A UNIFORM tried boxing her in while other men were banging on her car and screaming at her. She was probably scared and trying to protect her child the only way she could!

    There was no reason to use lethal force from everything on all the sites I've seen. Its terrible that security there have no other way to stop people, or vehicles other than firearms with live ammo. I bet they have no non-lethal projectiles, no strips, and no heavy vehicles ready.

    I could run a better security detail than those clowns.

    @pguill1964 The woman obviously knew more than she should; baby's daddy was Secret Service.  Was she talking about the Illuninati and NWO?  Is that why she was offed?  She found out the horrible truth about what is really going on in our country, freaked out and went straight to talk to Obama and bam

    Nationcrying

    @wantshonestgovt Right on.  Now that I found out her babies daddy was Secret Service it explains everything.  I've been watching the videos from Sandy Hook, same witness on mainstream media for most recent events (Boston Marathon Bombing, Sandy Hook), looking at pictures of certain things in those scenes and all of this adds up now.   Just goes to show you they will kill you out in the open if you try and tell the world and U.S. the truth.  This woman was shocked by what she heard and decided to confront the person she feels is responsible and they shot her in cold blood.  What do you think they have planned for the rest of us sheep.  Maybe those FEMA coffins are real.

    Are you serious?????, all of those men against one lady could not take her down. We are dealing here with a bunch of Boy Scout . I could have handle that job by myself. with no gun. Next time you want to see a pro at work, call me.

    @Bumbledore  Obviously she was panicked and trying to get away from "THOSE" that she knew were going to kill her for something that happened that had nothing to do with ramming a barricade,I think you are attempting to further hide the truth about what this was really all about!! This women had knowledge about something that the "higher ups" desperately wanted silenced! We have come to disbelieve anything the "media",an extension of the obama propaganda machine,spews to the people!! Something else is behind all of this and we the people are not being told the truth!!

    @Bumbledore It is pretty obvious from your several posts where you stand. I don't know what your motivation is, other than imagining you are saving the Presidents life (which was never in danger whatsoever). Perhaps you are one of the "Capitol Police"? Here is insight from the victims sister: “Deadly force was not necessary,” said the grieving sister, a retired NYPD transit police sergeant who lives in Bushwick. “They could have rammed the car or disabled the car.”

    @floridaboy You don't know that. Driving at somebody with a car is deadly force, deadly force is matched with deadly force. What are the police suppose to do? Run away while a car drives 40mph at them? Jump on the hood and roll off like "Super Bad"?  It's not your fault, you're not use to tactical scenarios or saving your live, since you just sit on the computer and have a 'normal' job. but this is big boy world, where danger occurs, you simply aren't ready for it.

    @Whatsername78 Yeah you're right, they should just sit around and get mowed down, by a hostile driver, because there is a child with them. I see no holes in this logic. What are 1 2 3 or even 5 grown men's lives with wives and children compared to the life of one child that wasn't even harmed?

    @JustinMartin Bull crap there was 6 uniformed men all around her and only one plain clothes cop with is badge hanging from his neck ass wipe. She knew he was cop. she was having mental issues cops are not mind readers. She may have even wanted to be shot.

    @JustinMartin Yeah, i would accept that excuse if you want to degrade her, and assume she has the intelligence of a wild animal. She's not a flighty bird, she's a HUMAN BEING. If I hit a barrier and saw police boxing me in, yelling at me, and holding guns to me, i'd hold my hands up and not move a muscle.

    @JustinMartin - I understand the overreaction of killing...I know when she first drove away, they shot at her...maybe they went for the tires then?  But, anyone with half a brain should know, when you drive your car at high speed and crash into police and security vehicles..you're putting yourself AT RISK for some police brutality or getting arrested at minimum.

    @pguill1964 It was not his baby.  The baby's daddy is Secret Service; she found out some stuff going on behind the scenes such as the fake Sandy Hook school shooting, the NWO; she found out the truth about America, was in shock, freaked out and they were probably "bugging" her apartment because she knew too much and she was going to confront Obama.  She was telling the rest of us a message that the government does not want us to know.  do a little research and you will come to know that I am more than likely - right.

    @pguill1964 No, baby daddy was not Barry the fake.  It was a secret service agent's baby.  She was from Connecticut, probably found out the TRUTH behind Sandy Hook and decided to go confront the president (who is really just a puppet but she may not know that) and wham!

    @Bumbledore @Bonhoeffer Think of it like this, thoese men are paid good money to take people down. They didnt take her down they shot to kill as if it was an order. Most police chases I have seen they always aim for the tire, and if they did she would of been slowed down, then the other tire.... slllloowws more... then wedge the car. But they MURDERED her WHEN THEY KNEW A BABY WAS IN THE CAR!!!! I move out of the way in the grocery store when a baby is coming my way, I would even hide a cigg. POLICE (aka PEACE Officers ) are not supposed to be firing that many shots and missing FIRST OF ALL. I would of got her on my first shot, just saying. They shoot how many bullets a month in training for "precision" and I heard a lot of shots go off as if the men protecting our capitol dont shoot well. 


    Long story short noone is on the side of the government in this topic from all these posts and people that talk about it in the stores, pumping gas, etc. Its wrong and the government is even more in the wrong for showing how much they cover up

    Bumbledore
    Bumbledore

    @Bonhoeffer @Bumbledore So you abandon your original appeal to emotion, and now say, the officer wasn't hurt so she shouldn't have been shot. What you fail to consider, is that deadly force is used as DEFENSE not as retaliation. An officer can't shoot somebody after they kill someone. if the person gives up. So naturally, following the logic, the officers shouldn't be hurt if they shot her and killed her.

    Bonhoeffer
    Bonhoeffer

    @Bumbledore @Bonhoeffer FYI the officer wasn't really hurt at all. The victim will be dead all the life of her child and family.
