SHOTS FIRED: Woman Drives Vehicle Into Police Car and Tries to Run Over Officers Near House Office Building

A woman drove a vehicle into multiple vehicles including a police cruiser then threatened to run over police officers near the Rayburn building that holds U.S. House of Representatives’ offices.

According to a Capitol Hill spokeswoman, police observed a vehicle being driven in “an erratic and aggressive” fashion. When police started following the vehicle, the driver made a u-turn which caused the officers to begin a pursuit.

During the pursuit, the suspect struck a police cruiser and threatened to run over officers at which point police fired shots into the vehicle.

An image of the vehicle shows bullet holes in the windshield but the driver was not struck.

The incident is being treated as a criminal matter and terrorism is not currently suspected.

The driver is now in police custody.
