Police officers in Washington DC shot and killed a female suspect this afternoon after she tried to break through White House gates. It is not known what led the woman to crash into the gate and run several red lights, but afterwards a small child was taken from her car by authorities. The child is reportedly in good health, but whether or not it was her mother driving the car is as yet unknown. The suspect did not reportedly have a weapon, and the child is too young to provide any useful information. We can’t know for sure whether this was an attack on the President, the government, or if the woman was suffering from some kind of illness.
