Capitol Police said a driver struck a police cruiser near 1st and Independence Avenue and tried to run over officers, CBS radio affiliate WTOP reports.

"During the attempt to arrest the suspect, shots were fired, however no individuals were injured during the arrest", said Malecki. There are no indications of terrorism so far, police said.
