Carey was shot multiple times, including once in the back of the head and once on the left side of back side, according to the report. The report does not mention exactly how many times Carey was shot, but video of the shooting indicates that officers fired at least seven rounds at her vehicle.
Officers from the U.S. Secret Service-Uniform Division and U.S. Capital Police fired shots at Carey, according to an initial police report (here in parts 1 and 2). It is unclear if Carey was in her vehicle when she was fatally shot or if she exited the car and then was shot. Though police do know that Carey was unarmed and her 1-year-old daughter was sitting in the back of her black Nissan at the time of the fatal shooting.
The child was unharmed and is currently in the custody of her father in Connecticut, Valarie Carey, Miriam’s sister, told NewsOne.
Eric Sanders, the attorney who is representing the Carey Family and is a former NYPD officer, told NewsOne that the shooting was unjustified.
