Capitol Hill Police Shooting Victim Identified as Miriam Carey; FBI Raid Connecticut Home

Authorities suggest mental health issues


The suspect in Thursday's high-speed chase between the White House and the Capitol Building is a dental hygienist from Connecticut, who may have had a history of mental issues.

The Associated Press, citing anonymous law enforcement sources, reports that Miriam Carey, 34, of Stamford, CT was the one who tried to plow her car into a barricade at the White House, then led cops on a high-speed chase before being shot dead near the Capitol.
