    Man Shot Dead After Hitting Officer With Car and Brandishing Weapon, Capitol Police S

    Man Shot Dead After Hitting Officer With Car and Brandishing Weapon, Capitol Police Say - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News - FOXNews.com

    WASHINGTON A man has been shot and killed by officers in the shadow of the U.S. Capitol after brandishing a weapon during a police chase, Capitol police said.

    U.S. Capitol Police spokeswoman Kimberly Schneider said around 5:15 p.m., police attempted to stop a white Mercedes Benz near Union Station. The car then fled and hit a police officer before driving the wrong way on Louisiana Avenue down Capitol Hill.

    That officer was one of two injured in the incident.

    An eyewitness, 58-year-old Dale Lanigan of Toledo, said a high-speed chase then ensued between police and the car before a crash on the Senate side of the U.S. Capitol.

    Schneider said the driver produced a weapon once his car came to rest and after failing to respond to commands, officers shot him.

    'The suspect is dead and we have retreived a weapon," she said.

    Capitol police were working with the Metropolitan Police Department to investigate the incident, Schneider said.

    Not a real smart thing to be doing in DC

    No, I think you're the only one.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
