WASHINGTON (CBSNewYork/AP) — A Connecticut woman driving a black Infiniti with her 1-year-old daughter in the car tried to ram through a White House barricade Thursday, then led police on a chase that ended with her being shot to death, officials said.
Law enforcement officials have identified the suspect as Miriam Carey, 34, of Stamford. Shortly after the incident, federal and local police converged on her home at Woodside Green, a three-story condominium building. Police officers cordoned off the complex and the surrounding neighborhood. A bomb squad robot was called in as a precaution.
Carey, a dental hygienist, grew up in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, friends told CBS 2.
