Eyewitness video shows police chase at US Capitol

Chase ended in woman's death

WASHINGTON -- A woman driving a black Infiniti with a young child inside tried to ram through a White House barricade Thursday, then led police on a chase toward the Capitol, where police shot and killed her, witnesses and officials said.

Tourists watched the shooting unfold on Constitution Avenue outside the Capitol as lawmakers inside debated how to end a government shutdown.

Police quickly locked down the entire complex temporarily, and both houses of Congress went into recess.
