When the car chase from the White House to the U.S. Capitol was happening Thursday, Arlington resident Stephanie Ettinger De Cuba was discussing pediatric research with congressional staffers, according to CBS Boston.
An alarm sounded and De Cuba was told to stay in the room.
“Outside of the building there were swarms of police with huge machine guns, and that was creepy to be totally honest,” she told the news station. “It was scary.”
The chase ended with police shooting the driver, 34-year-old Miriam Carey, of Connecticut.
