An attempt to ram the White House gates today resulted in a high speed chase to the Capitol and ended with shots fired and a female suspect dead, officials said.
The gunfire sent senators and staffers scrambling inside the Capitol which was put under lockdown.
A child was found unhurt in the suspect’s car, authorities said. After making an initial identification of the suspect, police are trying to confirm that the suspect is a 34-year-old woman from Stamford, Conn., with a history of mental health issues.
