At that time, a guard at the facility was shot by someone inside of the green Accord. At approximately 7:35 pm, Seventh District officers observed the green Accord in the Woodland Terrace area and began to pursue.

  • That is messed up. I wonder if the kidnapping victim knew the suspect or if it was totally random. Hope all the victims involved recover quickly.

    • Washington Post was reporting the victim was the wife of the suspect. Also the security guard has passed. Sad all around.

  • I read that he knew her. I also heard on the radio this morning that she had a restraining order against him which gave me the chills. Of course it’s today’s brand of journalism so god only knows if that’s accurate.

  • scary stuff
