FROM WIRE REPORTS WASHINGTON — A woman with a 1-year-old girl led Secret Service and police on a car chase from the White House past the Capitol on Thursday, attempting to penetrate the security barriers at both national landmarks before she was shot to death, police said. The child was unhurt. “I’m pretty confident this was not an accident,” said Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy Lanier. Still, Capitol police said there appeared to be no terrorist link.
