Active Military Drill in DC During Capitol Police Shooting
Details are still emerging about the police shooting that left a mother dead after she drove through a restricted area near the US capitol building.
At first the media reported that she was a terrorist who fired shots, but hours later we learned that the woman was in fact unarmed, and was shot through the car for failing to pull over for police. There was also a 1-year-old child in the car who luckily was not struck by a stray bullet.
To make matters even more suspicious, there was also a live military drill taking place during the incident.
According to Army.com “Emergency vehicles and first responders are once again in action in the National Capital Region and will be thru Oct. 3. They are participating in “Capital Shield 2014.” More than 38 participating agencies from DOD and Capital region response agencies will perform mock mass casualty rescues, Defense Support to civil agency technical rescues and law enforcement tactical responses.
