US media have revealed the identity of a woman who was shot last night while trying to break into the Congress Hall where a session was held to confirm Joe Biden’s victory in the US presidential election.
The murdered woman’s name is Ashlee Babbitt, a U.S. Air Force veteran from San Diego, as the New York Post reported.
Earlier, before Trump supporters stormed the Congress building, she tweeted “Nothing will stop us” and “The storm is here”.
An Army veteran who served four tours
Babbitt was married and spent 14 years in the U.S. Air Force. She served four tours with the Air Force and ran a Fowlers Pool Service and Supply business in the San Diego area.
Robit Babbitt, the mother of the murdered woman, accused the authorities of not reporting the death of her daughter. They found about the incident and the death over the news.
Babbitt was active on Twitter, and often expressed love for her homeland and support for President Donald Trump.
In her latest posts via that social network, Babbitt announced her participation in the protest in Washington and expressed concern about the legality of the election results.
Babbitt also demanded the resignation of Vice President Mike Pence and the filing of charges against him for treason.
Pence did not want to unilaterally refuse the verification of electoral votes yesterday, which is why Donald Trump, but also many more, called him out on Twitter, including the late Babbitt.
The investigation will bring more details about the case
At the moment, there is not much information about how Babbitt died.
Although footage of the moment Babbitt was killed has surfaced, it is still unclear who fired and why.
Authorities still do not want to come out with more information about the incident in order to prevent reactions and additional disturbances, but it is realistic to expect a prompt resolution of this case as soon as possible.
What we do know so far is that Capitol security at one point decided to use weapons to prevent further advancement of protestors into the Capitol building.
