Capitol police say suspect killed near Capitol

The shooting occurred after a Capitol police officer tried to make a routine traffic stop near Union Station, a police spokeswoman said. Sgt. Kimberly Schneider said the driver fled, nearly ran over two officers, struck a parked and then crashed into a police cruiser.

Robert Drumm, visiting Washington from Edmond, Oklahoma said he was walking near the Capitol when he saw police cars engaged in a high speech chase with a white Mercedes.

Between the words ‘parked” and “and,” I believe there should be another word (vehicle, car, bike, etc).


The article says there was a “high speech chase”.

Those of us who grew up watching Walter Cronkite did not think of him as an entertainer. He was a professional broadcast journalist. Guess Reuters (and likely all other news services)don’t have category other than entertainment under which to announce his death. That alone is sad.
