Update: Woman shot at U.S. Capitol suffered post-partum depression
Story By Associated Press

WASHINGTON, DC - The mother of a Connecticut woman who was shot to death by police after trying to breach a barrier at the White House says her daughter had post-partum depression.

Authorities say the woman set off a high-speed car chase that put the Capitol on lockdown Thursday.

Two law enforcement officials identified the driver as 34-year-old Miriam Carey, of Stamford, Conn.

She was traveling with a 1-year-old girl who avoided serious injury.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation.

Carey's mother, Idella Carey, says her daughter began suffering from post-partum depression after having her daughter, Erica, last August. `

The mother says her daughter had ``no history of violence'' and she didn't know why she was in Washington, D.C.
