HARTFORD, Conn. - The sisters of a woman fatally shot by police in Washington after she tried to ram her car through a White House barrier say she wasn't delusional and suggest she have been fleeing danger when she was killed.
Valarie Carey said in an interview on NBC's "Today" show on Monday that perhaps her sister, Miriam Carey, was afraid and fleeing with a 13-month-old child in her car when she was killed on Thursday.
Another sister, Amy Carey-Jones, suggests police overreacted or were negligent.
The sisters also disputed officials' account that Miriam Carter was under the delusion that President Barack Obama was communicating with her.
Amy Carey-Jones said it's "not the Miriam we knew."
Police in Washington say they're reviewing the use of deadly force.
