Abbottabad, Pakistan (CNN) -- Osama bin Laden was not armed but did put up resistance when U.S. forces entered the compound he was in, then killed him, White House spokesman Jay Carney said Tuesday.
Providing new details of the events that transpired early Monday in Pakistan, Carney said U.S. Navy SEALs went floor-to-floor clearing the three-story compound where bin Laden's family lived along with others.
Three people were killed on the first floor, including a woman, Carney said.
 
U.S. forces then moved upstairs where they found bin Laden in a room with a woman believed to be his wife -- both unarmed, Carney said. She rushed the U.S. forces and was shot in the leg but not killed. Bin Laden resisted and was shot and killed, Carney said.
 
On Monday, President Barack Obama's top counterterrorism adviser, John Brennan, said bin Laden was resisting and had a weapon, though he added that it was unclear whether bin Laden had fired a shot.
Asked Tuesday why the decision was made to shoot and kill bin Laden if he was not armed, Carney said that "he resisted." He did not explain how bin Laden resisted.
 
Materials taken from the compound included 10 hard drives, five computers and more than 100 storage devices, a senior U.S. official told CNN Tuesday. Among the storage devices are disks, DVDs and thumb drives, the source said.
