U.S. SENATE News:
According to reports, police shot and killed dental hygienist Miriam Carey, 34, from Stamford, Conn. She apparently suffered from post-partum depression and had her 1-year-old daughter in the backseat of her car as she rammed the outer gate at the White House and then sped down Pennsylvania Avenue as shots were fired.
Carey led police on a high-speed car chase from the White House to the U.S. Capitol. A Capitol Police officer was injured when his vehicle hit a barricade in pursuit of Carey. A Secret Service officer also was reported injured when Carey’s Infinity sedan struck the officer. Carey’s baby is reported to be in protective custody in good condition.
