WASHINGTON - A wild car chase Thursday that started near the White House ended minutes later in gunfire at the U.S. Capitol , creating a chaotic scene of blaring sirens, locked-down lawmakers and bystanders hitting the dirt.
The female suspect who drove the two-door black car that sped past iconic Washington landmarks and ran red lights with police cruisers in pursuit died after the chase.
An officer in one of the police vehicles she rammed in trying to get away was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
A young child in the black car with the woman appeared to be uninjured.
