Connecticut Woman Causes Traffic Incident In Washington, D.C.

This afternoon in Washington, DC, a woman tried to ram a White House barricade with her car, led police on a chase toward the Capitol where they later surrounded her, caused the Capitol to go into lock-down mode, rammed a police vehicle, and was eventually shot dead by the police.  One policeman was injured, apparently when his car was rammed.  The woman was later identified as Miriam Carey, a dental hygienist who lived in Connecticut, and was licensed to practice both there and in New York.  A young girl, aged 2 or 3 years, was found inside the woman's car, and taken to a hospital.

The above is the short version of what I think happened today.  The New York Post has some of the details here and here.  The New Haven Register also has a report.
