WASHINGTON, D.C. -

A metro couple gets a front row seat as police flood the streets of DC and put the district on lockdown.

All as a woman is shot and killed while leading officers on a chase from the White House to the Capitol.

Dr. Chuck Harding and his wife Jo just moved from Oklahoma City to Washington D.C. and found themselves in the middle of the chaos on the capitol today. Harding had a front row seat to where a capitol hill crime spree ended.

"As you can see, just steps away from the incident, I walked over and took some photographs," said Harding.

Bullets were flying right outside his window. He lives across from the Supreme Court building.

"We heard shots fired and my wife immediately looked at me and said, ‘Those were gunshots,'" said Harding.

Harding took pictures as a huge police presence swarmed the area within seconds of the shots. He was impressed with how Metro PD, the secret service, capitol hill police, FBI and other agencies worked together to block off the street, reroute traffic and protect the public.

"From every corner imaginable, there were vehicles responding, helicopters in the sky, swat was coming in," Harding said.

He said he wasn't scared because he's worked in security before, but it was alarming that someone used a car as a weapon.

"That's something very serious and police need to use lethal force to keep the citizens safe."

Harding and his wife, Jo, just moved to Washington, D.C., after 13 years in Oklahoma City.

"Of course Oklahoma City, we don't have a lot of situations like this."

They are part of a ministry involving faith and country called Awake America and that's why they moved there.

"We are on the front lines here and that's exactly where God wants us."

Tonight, Harding's street is still on lockdown. He said he had to have a police escort to his door when he and his wife headed back home tonight.
