A Connecticut woman who was shot to death by police after a car chase that began when she attempted to breach a barrier at the White House suffered from post-partum depression, according to WRAL.

Yesterday’s chase and subsequent shooting unfolded between two national landmarks, briefly shuttered the chambers where federal lawmakers were debating how to end a government shutdown and stirred fresh panic in a city where a gunman two weeks ago killed 12 people.

Two law enforcement officials identified the driver as 34-year-old Miriam Carey, of Stamford, Conn. She was traveling with her 1-year-old daughter. The child was not injured, according to WRAL.

Carey’s mother, Idella Carey, told ABC News last night that her daughter began suffering from post-partum depression after giving birth to her daughter, Erica, last August.
