After hitting the barrier, the woman began driving toward the capitol with secret service officers in pursuit. The capitol was put on lockdown after gunshots were fired. We're told those inside the capitol were told to shelter in place. We spoke to East Texas congressman Louie Gohmert, who was in the capitol, when the shooting happened. "It's just really tragic. I don't know what her issues were. But your heart just goes to people that they become so desperate that they do something like that," says Gohmert. Capitol Police Chief Kim Dine says there is no information to indicate the incident was an act of terrorism. He added that an officer was injured, but the injuries are not life threatening. There was a child in the woman's car--who was not hurt.
