Two police officers involved in the shooting of unarmed mother Miriam Carey have been removed from street duty, Capitol police said on Monday.
"Neither one of the officers are on the street at the moment, pending the outcome of the investigation," Lt Kimberly Schneider told the Guardian.
Schneider could not confirm whether the officers had been formally suspended but said that suspension would be the normal course of action when police had been involved in a death.
The news comes as Carey's family insisted in an interview on Monday morning that she was not mentally ill, disputing anonymous briefings given by law enforcement officials.
Authorities told some media outlets that Carey, who was shot dead by police after she rammed her car into a traffic barrier close to the White House, had had depression.
