< 警方:击毙一名女嫌疑人 Police: Female Suspect Killed

在美国首都华盛顿的国会山附近,警察开枪击毙一名女子。这名女子曾试图开车闯过在白宫附近设置的障碍物,随后警察开车追逐。

华盛顿警察局长拉尼尔对记者说,警察向这名女子驾驶的汽车开枪,打死了她。拉尼尔说,在星期四下午发生的这起事件中,曾在两个地点开枪。

国会山警方负责人戴恩说,看上去这是一起孤立事件,与恐怖主义无关。他表示,一名警官从那名女子驾驶的车中救出了一名一岁的孩子。

有关当局说,两名警官在这起事件中受伤,但目前状况稳定,没有危险。

这起事件发生时,美国国会曾经出于安全原因一度被封锁。不过国会办公大厦里面的议员们没有受到任何威胁。

警方拒绝对这名驾车女子的身份和动机发表评论,并表示目前正在调查这起事件。

Police have shot and killed a woman near the U.S. Capitol in Washington, after she tried to drive through a barricade near the White House before driving away and leading officers on a dramatic car chase.

Washington Police Chief Cathy Lanier told reporters the woman died after police fired into her vehicle.  Lanier said shots were fired in at least two locations during the confrontation Thursday afternoon.

Capitol Police Chief Kim Dine said this appeared to be an isolated incident with no link to terrorism.  He said a police officer rescued a 1-year-old child from the car after the chase.

Authorities said two officers were hurt in the incident, but that both are in good condition and expected to recover.

The U.S. Capitol was put under a brief security lockdown as the situation unfolded.  But there never was a threat to lawmakers inside the building.

Police are refusing to comment on the identity or motive of the woman who drove the car.  They say the incident remains under investigation.
