California Air Force Veteran Shot During The Siege Of The Capitol
A shocking video shows a woman being shot in the chest while trying to break into the Capitol building. According to the latest information, the woman is in critical condition.
A Trump supporter was among the crowd of people who disagreed with the Electoral College decision, which later on the day of the siege recognized Joe Biden's victory in the presidential election.
The injured protester was identified as Ashli Babbitt, who had 14 years in the service and did four tours of duty, was married and lived near San Diego, her husband Aaron told KUSI-TV.
The day before the storming of the Capitol, Babbitt posted messages on social media about the overthrow of power.
Nothing will stop us....they can try and try and try but the storm is here and it is descending upon DC in less than 24 hours....dark to light!— CommonAshSense (@Ashli_Babbitt) January 5, 2021
Violent protests in DC erupted during the Electoral College vote. Trump's army of supporters temporarily interrupted the vote, but later, when thousands of activists were pushed away from the Capitol building, the College voted 92-7 for Biden's victory.
