Officials in Stamford, Connecticut are calling a downtown shooting that left five injured this past weekend ‘random,’ but pledge more police protection in the future. 

Stamford’s Board of Representatives meets Monday night in its first regular meeting of 2014. Its members won’t have to vote on a controversial mayoral appointment to the city’s Police Commission as planned.

A driver who led police on a car chase from the White House to the U.S. Capitol before being shot to death yesterday has been identified as a woman from Stamford, Connecticut.

Law enforcement officials says the driver was 34-year-old Miriam Carey. She was traveling with her 1-year-old daughter who avoided serious injury and was taken into protective custody.

Police, fire, and other emergency vehicles descended on a Woodside Green Condominiums near Scalzi Park in Stamford Thursday afternoon where Carey allegedly lived. Arthur Lamorte lives in the complex.
