STAMFORD - Police have launched an active investigation at the home of a Stamford woman who allegedly rammed her vehicle into the White House on Thursday.

The woman, identified as Miriam Carey, 34, was pursued by police after she drove her black Infiniti into the gates. Her 1-year-old daughter was in the car and was not injured even after police fatally shot Carey.

The car was registered to Carey at 114 Woodside Green.

Neighbors say they were confused by the large police presence, which shut down Bridge Street between Summer Street and Washington Boulevard.

Carey was a dental hygienist licensed to practice in Connecticut and New York. She recently lived in Brooklyn, before moving to Stamford.

Investigators are looking into whether Carey had a history of mental health issues.
