Many questions still linger after a woman leading police on a wild car chase through the streets of Washington is shot and killed.
The woman, identified as 34-year-old Miriam Carey, rammed her black Infiniti sedan into a security barrier and backed into a Secret Service officer about a block away from the White House last week.
“After police asked her to get out of her car, she drove away, leading them to a high-speed chase down Pennsylvania avenue—all the way to the east side of the Capitol, Secret Service on her tail,” CNN’s Joe Johns reports. (WATCH TOP VIDEO)
Johns says, “Just moments later, her car crashed outside the Hart Senate Office Building. Perceiving a threat, police opened fire.”
Two officers were injured in the melee, and are now recovering.
Meanwhile, no weapons were found inside the Infiniti.
But in the backseat, an officer pulled a one-year-old girl believed to be Kerry’s daughter from the car and took her to a hospital. She is now in good condition and in protective custody.
Still the question remains, what drove Carey to begin this chase?
Her boyfriend, cooperating with federal law enforcement, was questioned last night and provides clues.
According to a law enforcement source, Carey's boyfriend contacted police about ten months ago, in Stamford, Connecticut, because he was worried about his baby daughter who was just four months old at the time.
“The boyfriend apparently told police Carey was acting delusional, that she was claiming that President Obama had placed her city of Stamford under lock down and that her home was under electronic surveillance,” CNN’s Deb Feyerick reports.
On Monday's "New Day" Miriam Carey's sisters, Valarie Carey and Amy Carey-Jones. and their attorney Eric Sanders, spoke with Anchor Kate Bolduan.
The family says they believe the police used too much force and that Miriam seemed fine the last time they saw her.
Amy Carey-Jones says, "She was under treatment and she had her life challenges but that doesn't mean that she still wasn't a person."
Valerie Carey, a former police officer, says "The questions isn’t really why was she in Washington, the question is why was she killed in Washington. And all I can see when I look at that video is my sister is afraid and she’s frightened and she’s trying to get out of there. She’s confused, she doesn’t know which way to go.”
