NBC reported that the victim was a 34-year old woman who lives in Connecticut.
The incident began after the unarmed woman attempted to breach an outer ring of White House security in her car.
In a multi-agency press conference, authorities said the woman hit and wounded an officer before leading police on a high-speed chase toward Capitol Hill. The officer she hit is doing well.
Shots were fired by authorities after the suspect rammed into a Secret Service vehicle and then later after the suspect's car crashed.
Police are not releasing any additional information about the woman. The child in the car was 1 year old. There is no apparent connection to international terrorism.
