STAMFORD, Conn. (WTNH)-- Federal investigators swarmed a Stamford apartment that they think is home to the woman who set off chaos on Capitol Hill Thursday, trying to ram the gate at the White House until police shot her dead.
The whole time, a child was in the back seat of the car.
Police have confirmed that the woman who was killed was a 34-year-old woman from Stamford named Miriam Carey, who has a history of mental illness.
ABC News spoke with Carey's mother who told them Miriam Carey suffered from postpartum depression.
"They said something that it's a relationship to the shooting in Washington, maybe the woman I believe has a residence here in our complex," said Jennifer Pancer, Stamford resident.
A dramatic scene unfolded at a Stamford apartment complex. Federal authorities surrounded the 100 block of Woodside Green, bringing in the bomb squad and unleashing K-9s.
This, after officials say a woman who lived in Stamford was involved a high speed chase near the White House.
Police say the suspect had a one-year-old girl inside the car, when officials say she tried to break through the security barriers at the White House which lead police on a chase to the US Capitol, before she was shot to death.
Authorities say the car had Connecticut license plates, leading to a federal investigation at Woodside Green.
Residents described the scene.
"From the police sirens to the helicopters flying around, Secret Service, bomb squad, all of that," said Tony Macari, Stamford resident.
Residents say they're shocked they lived a few doors down from the suspect.
"We just seen her out in the parking lot so there is nothing suspicious," said Pancer.
"Apparently she parked the black Infiniti, apparently she parked in the same lot as me. I'm sure I probably seen her," said Marcus Sweeney, Stamford resident.
State, local, and federal authorities are searching for more clues in this case. Stamford police set up a perimeter, evacuating residents from Woodside Green.
"It's just a huge inconvenience because you don't know, because they're not giving us a timeframe of when we can get inside," said Jason Corrente, Stamford resident.
