STAMFORD - Federal, state and local officials have concluded their search of a Stamford apartment that housed the woman accused in Thursday's police pursuit and shooting in Washington D.C.

Officials swarmed the Woodside Green home of Miriam Carey, 34, after she attempted to drive through the White House fence with her infant daughter in the car. Government officials say they found medications used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and that Carey had suffered from a deteriorating mental state since December.

Family members say she was dealing with postpartum depression after the birth of her daughter.

Nearby residents, about 50 of whom were evacuated for the night due to the investigation, say they cannot believe their neighbor would act so recklessly.

Carey's boyfriend told detectives that she thought President Barack Obama had placed Stamford on lockdown.

Lawmakers inside the U.S. Capitol were told to stay inside and tourists were instructed to take shelter as police chased Carey in her black Infiniti and eventually shot her dead. Her daughter was removed from the vehicle and is currently in safe hands.
