“I’ve never seen anything like it,” said one woman who lives in the neighborhood where the scene was filmed.
She said she’s been told to leave her home in fear of her safety, and that some people have called the police.
Trump was not at the White House Thursday night, but he was spotted on Twitter late Thursday afternoon.
“If I had to guess, I think we’ll be looking at the charges,” he wrote.
“The truth will come out, but we will find out.
#PrayForHer” He did not mention the women who were shot or the woman who was killed.
The shooting happened at around 11:30 p.m.
Wednesday in the area of Pennsylvania Avenue and Independence Avenue NW.
Police say the two people in the SUV were shot in the leg and killed.
Police are still searching for the other driver.
Trump has said that there is no evidence to support his claim that the woman was trying to get him into trouble.
He also has called the woman’s death a “fake.”
Trump has not been formally accused of a crime.
He has denied any wrongdoing, and has maintained that the shooting was an accident.
“It’s a terrible tragedy.
It’s very sad.
I have been hearing the news for weeks,” he said at a campaign rally in Iowa on Thursday.
“You can never predict.
I know that I’ve been very good at not letting it happen.
I’ve never heard of anything like this.”
On Thursday morning, the president told reporters at the Oval Office that the investigation was underway.
“We have to get to the bottom of it.
It has to be very thorough.
We have to figure out what happened.
I think there’s going to be a lot of very serious investigations,” Trump said.
“I think it’s going be very, very soon.
He said the investigation could be a “major distraction.”
Trump on Thursday tweeted that the “disgraceful act” by a “sick, deranged person” was a “tragedy” and that he had ordered a full investigation.
He called on Congress to “immediately investigate this and take swift action to bring those responsible to justice.”
The president’s tweets came as a federal appeals court blocked a restraining order against Trump issued by a woman who alleges she was gang-raped at a Trump hotel in Florida.
The court also blocked a California man’s lawsuit against Trump, saying the president’s conduct amounted to defamation.
“What has transpired is truly shocking,” Trump wrote.
The president has also called the shooting a “horrific event.”
In a tweet Wednesday night, Trump said, “The victims in the horrible incident in Florida, the victims of a heinous act, are now at the very heart of a political witch hunt.
This is a disgraceful act and it is an outrage.
The American people demand justice!”
