Sources: Officer freed with jaws of life

Washington (CNN) - Police near the U.S. Capitol opened fire on Thursday on a car being chased by authorities, hitting a woman driving the vehicle that also contained a child, an intelligence source told CNN.

The child appeared to be uninjured, according to the source and witnesses.

During the pursuit, the driver of the black car hit another police cruiser. Sources tell CNN's Deborah Feyerick that the police officer in that cruiser had to be extricated using the jaws of life.
