Woman Shot To Death At U.S. Capitol After Chase Identified

The mother of the woman who was shot to death by police yesterday after trying to breach a barrier at the White House and leading authorities on a high-speed chase to the Capitol says her daughter had post-partum depression.

Two law enforcement officials identified the driver as 34-year-old Miriam Carey, of Stamford, Connecticut. 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 tells ABC News her daughter began suffering from post-partum depression after having her daughter last August... and says she had "no history of violence." She says she doesn't know why Carey was in Washington.
