School administrators have offered up som e solutions but the options – and the timetable - have parents deeply concerned.

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.
