Shots were fired near the U.S. Capitol Wednesday morning after a woman hit her car into a police cruiser.
The woman, who has been taken into D.C. Metro Police custody, was described as "erratic and aggressive."
CBS News reports shots were fired at 9:30 a.m. on Independence Avenue near the Botanic Gardens.
According to police, the female suspect was attempting to run her car into police cruisers, while also trying to hit officers on foot.
Capitol Police communications director Eva Malecki claimed shots were fired when officers tried to arrest the suspect. No one was injured.
"This incident appears criminal in nature with no nexus to terrorism," she said in a press conference Wednesday morning.
A federal law enforcement official confirmed to the news outlet that the suspect's name is not in the government's terrorism database.
An eyewitness claimed the car was stopped during a checkpoint.
The incident comes almost one year after police shot a man who pulled a weapon during a checkpoint near the Capitol.
