WASHINGTON (AP) – Police are responding to an incident near the U.S. Capitol grounds, and a witness says shots were fired.
Police say an erratic driver was stopped near the Capitol Hill district. They say hots may have been fired.
A car was stopped at a checkpoint Wednesday morning, according to the witness, and police ordered a woman driving a vehicle to stop.
The driver was arrested and no one was hurt.
Police say the incident appears to be criminal, not terrorism.
It is being described as a traffic stop.
Traffic was blocked on a short stretch of local streets just South of the Capitol.
The witness, on Capitol Hill to visit lawmakers, declined to permit her name to be used.
