Police try to stop a car - level 2

Police try to stop a car - level 2

07-10-2013 06:00

There's a shocking video which was taken in Washington the other day. The video shows a black car which stopped in front of the US Capitol.

Police officers surrounded the car but it sped off. Police shot at the car while it was getting away. In the end, the car was surrounded and the driver killed by the police. It was a woman and she was a mother. Her one year old daughter was inside the car.

Police have been searching the home of the driver. They haven't found anything suspicious and they don't think that the woman was a terrorist.

Difficult words: the other day (few days ago), speed off (get away fast), suspicious (something that could be bad).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
