    Shots heard outside Capitol, building in lockdown

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A police officer was reported injured after gunshots at the U.S. Capitol, police said Thursday while putting the entire complex on lockdown.

    "There are reports of injuries," said Terrance Gainer, the Senate's Sergeant at Arms.

    FBI agents were also headed to the scene.

    The reports comes two weeks after a deadly shooting at the nearby Navy Yard and amid a government shutdown.

    As a warning was sounded, the House abruptly went into recess and lawmakers left the chamber floor. The House had just finished approving legislation aimed at partly lifting the government shutdown by paying National Guard and Reserve members.

    People standing outside the Supreme Court across the street from Congress were hurried into the court building by authorities.

    The White House was quickly locked down after the incident at Capitol Hill and the stretch of Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the compound was closed to pedestrians. Secret Service said the procedures were precautionary.

    Suicide by cop? Disgruntled employee, off meds? liberal or tea partier? I am sure the pundits will speculate and speculate. The photo of the sniper prone in the firing position on the steps of the capital was kinda iconic...in a disturbing way.

    I will wager at this early stage of reporting that.....

    Woman was unarmed, all shots fired by police.

    If correct, I am your new king.

    Seriously, only shots fired were by police/secret service and somehow 7 were injured. Go figure.

    She probably lost it trying to sign-up for obamacare.

    Maybe she just panicked and the steroid heads overreacted as they tend to do.

    Sounds like a conspiracy is she is the only fatality. Funny how much the capital police are involved in things like this, the Vince Foster immaculate suicide concoction, DC snipers, Navy yard.....I'd almost say they are the FBI's uniformed puppets.

    I hear when she tried to ram the gate that her car was using police-grade premium gas which is extra deadly. Even more shocking, she was able to fill her car without a background check or a waiting period!

    I just saw a video on fox showing 2 cops blasting away at her drivers side window.....right before she drove away! Either rounds were bouncing off the glass or a horrible point blank shooter.

    I'll bet he wishes he still had his 1911. :cool:

    What are they smoking in Connecticut? Here's another whack job going off the deep end. It's sad that she had to die but it looks like she wasn't going to stop until the car or her was disabled.

    I see the first linked-to story, but every comment after that seems to be in reference to a story not linked in this thread. Help a brother out!

    Disgusting! I bet this woman just freaked out by the cops behavior and it escalated beyond control.

    Yeah, it sure is brave to shoot an unarmed woman while here baby was in the car.

    Who would have thought that a nation run by a BLK Marxist Muslim would turn it's power against aged White Middle Class War Heroes on the same day that the most heavily armed 'Police" Force on the planet shot down an unarmed woman W/child and then claim they did not know who fired the shots?

    they wanted to claim that they did not know who fired the shots so that all the networks would blame the AR15 that she did not own or carry. Remember if you hear it on the news (any of them) it must be true....
