US Capitol Chase Probe Leads FBI To Connecticut

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — The mayor of Stamford, Conn., said the FBI was executing a search warrant Thursday in the city in connection with a car chase from the White House to the U.S. Capitol that ended with the driver being shot to death.

Mayor Michael Pavia says Stamford police are assisting federal authorities as needed. Police officers had cordoned off a condominium building and the surrounding neighborhood in the shoreline city.

Among the neighbors told to evacuate the complex was 37-year-old Angela Corrente, who said she was told it could be a couple of hours or overnight before she could return.

The car that tried to ram through a White House barricade before attempting to penetrate security barriers at the Capitol had Connecticut license plates.

Connecticut authorities said they would not release details about the car based on the license plate number.

Police described it as an isolated event and saw no indications of terrorism.
