NEW YORK (AP) — A sister of the woman shot to death by police in Washington after trying to ram her car through a White House barrier says there were no indications her sister was unstable.

Amy Carey-Jones said Friday that Miriam Carey "seemed OK" when they spoke more than a week ago.

Another sister said police should not have used deadly force. That sister, Valarie Carey, is a former New York City police officer.

Attempts to reach police in Washington for comment early Saturday were unsuccessful. Officials previously said circumstances leading to the shooting remain under investigation.

The sisters spoke late Friday outside Valarie Carey's Brooklyn home. They say Miriam Carey had been suffering from postpartum depression since the birth of her 1-year-old daughter.

Police say Miriam Carey's actions Thursday weren't an accident.
