Did you hear about the "possible" terror attack in DC yesterday?

Two police officers are among those who have been taken to a hospital after being struck by a pickup truck at a busy Washington DC intersection.

The officers were on bicycles when the truck swerved around a bus, striking them at 9 p.m. local time.

A traffic aide and two pedestrians were also hit -- for a total of five victims.

One officer is listed in very critical condition. The others have non-life-threatening injuries.

D.C. Metro Police Chief Peter Newsham says a weapon was recovered from the suspect's vehicle.

When asked if he could rule out terrorism Newsham replied,"We have to look at that very closely. We do not have a motive at this time."

Both the driver and another person in the vehicle have been arrested.
Story and vid here. 

This is an under the radar news story.  The DC police are being very closed mouth about it but they did say they're gonna have to look very closely at it being a terror attack.

Additionally unconfirmed reports say that an AK-47 was found in the vehicle.

From my chair this could be any number of things.  Terrorism, Sovereign Citizens (because two cops were targeted), revenge against the badge, some kind of weird could be damn near anything.

The weird thing is that its not popping up on national news.
