View Comments ()



    The family of a woman killed in front of the U.S. Capitol is suing the federal government.

    Miriam Carey, 34, was shot after hitting a White House barrier with her car and fleeing police in October.

    Her family released a statement Tuesday saying her death was not justified. They filed a $75 million wrongful death suit.

    They also want a congressional investigation into the case.
