Woman Shot By Capitol Police Was Being Sued By Condo Assn.
STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The Connecticut woman who was shot to death by police after a car chase in Washington had been sued by her condominium association for failure to pay fees.
The complaint filed in November by the association for the Stamford building said Miriam Carey had failed to pay her fees in full since August 2010 and owed the association $1,759 in addition to collection costs. The lawsuit was settled in February.
The lawsuit by the Woodside Green Association indicates Carey took out a mortgage on her Stamford condo in the amount of $237,616 in September 2009.
The 34-year-old Carey was identified by law enforcement officials as the woman who led police on a chase through Washington on Thursday after trying to breach a barrier at the White House.
