Shots Fired At Capitol in Washington

Shots were fired near the Capitol in Washington, D.C. on Thursday afternoon. As a result, the Capitol went on lockdown and a "shelter in place" order was issued. A black vehicle reportedly slammed into a barricade outside the White House, fled the scene and was followed by the Secret Service to outside the Capitol building. It is reported that shots came from police, not from the car. The female driver has been confirmed dead. One police officer is confirmed to be injured from the car collision, but no officers are reported shot. Capitol Police Chief Kim Dine said this "appears to be an isolated incident," unrelated to terrorism. 

There is also reports that there was a baby in the car being driven by the woman. 

The Capitol lockdown has since been lifted and activity has resumed.
