Play associated audio

One woman was killed and two police officers injured in a police chase that started at the White House and ended near the U.S. Capitol. The woman was driving a car with a baby inside when she tried to enter White House Grounds. Police followed her on a high-speed chase through downtown D.C.

Rob Fox was just outside the Capitol when the shooting happened. He's a program analyst for the Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Emergency Management. He has been furloughed during the partial government shutdown, and he went to Capitol Hill to voice his frustration about the Congressional impasse. 

He was sitting on the steps in front of the Capitol when he noticed a black car coming toward the building. In this audio he tells WAMU's Rebecca Blatt about what he saw.
