THE SCOOP: The Capitol has 7-8 police in the rotunda... There are enough eyewitness reports from the "regulars" that it is confirmed that there were upwards of 100 police at the Capitol about an hour and a half ago... ...
Anyone have more info?
Shortly after 5 pm I was at the west end of Willy St. First I saw two cop cars running hot and going fast
-- they were eastbound on Willy and turned off on the Jenifer St bus lane. This is unusual because cop cars don't generally use that lane. I lost sight of them after that.
Just a very few minutes later I was in my car facing west on Willy around Blount St and I had to pull over and stop on the left for two vehicles running hot and going west. I can't identify them. They weren't cop cars, but they weren't the Willy St fire truck either. I was paying attention to pulling over safely so they could pass, not to identifying them. Sorry about that.
At the time I thought how weird it was having vehicles with red lights on, in a big hurry, going both east and west on Willy St.
I don't know if they were coming from or going to the Capitol. I was more thinking someone had fallen through the ice or something of that sort. The time coincides with the time mentioned above, though.
