NEW YORK — A sister of the Connecticut woman shot to death by police in Washington after trying to ram her car through a White House barrier says there were no indications that her sister was unstable.
Miriam Carey’s sister Amy Carey-Jones said Friday that her sister “seemed OK” the last time they spoke more than a week ago.
A second sister, Valarie Carey, said police should not have used deadly force.
Valarie Carey is a retired New York City police officer. She said there was “no need for a gun to be used.”
The sisters spoke late Friday outside Valarie Carey’s home in Brooklyn. They say Miriam Carey had been suffering from postpartum depression since the birth of her 1-year-old daughter.
