This is the only report I've read so far that notes a police officer was injured.

Shots heard near the Capital. In other news, a boat in the Potomic has a wet hull.

Just saying, capitol hill is probably one of the nicest areas in DC.

That depends on which side. It is being gentrified but it's still not one of the nicest areas in DC. Everything in NW is pretty good - great. Everything in SE is pretty bad - don't ever go there.

CNN is reporting she had a child in the car with her. :face:

EDIT: CNN is reporting the woman is wounded, not dead. So that's still a question mark.

The car was black and therefore certain to be classified as an "assault weapon-vehicle". Expect another round of anti-gun hysteria with no mention that the only ones shooting were the police, at a mother and child... probably because she tried to get into a "Closed" national monument.

I did some plumbing work down there and a lot of the once empty crack houses are now owned and occupied by white collar workers. A lot of DC is on the up and up.

Something tells me this is going to end very badly for the Capitol Police.
