Shots have been fired by police near the White House this morning as a motorist tried to run over police on Independence Avenue.
One female driver is now in custody.
The mayhem unfolded just before 9:30 a.m. when cops tried to stop the female motorist, who was driving erratically along Independence Avenue, according to Eva Malecki, the spokeswoman for the US Capitol Police.
She made a U-turn and fled, hitting a police cruiser and nearly striking some officers.
Malecki told reporters the incident appears to be “criminal in nature with no nexus to terrorism.”
She said shots were fired as cops tried to arrest the woman but she didn’t say who fired.
Photos taken at the scene show the woman’s dark-colored Chevy four-door with a shot out rear windshield and two bullet holes in the front windshield.
The woman, wearing a turquoise sweatshirt, was taken into custody after a brief pursuit at Washington and Independence Avenues SW.
More to come.
