The Trump supporter who was shot dead has been identified.
Air Force Veteran Ashli Babbit of San Diego was shot in the neck as she tried to make her way inside of the Capitol Building.
According to reports, Ashli was wearing a Trump Flag and was attempting to enter inside Capitol Hill, an officer then immediately shot her neck leaving her in a pool of blood.
Medics were then called on the scene and the woman was taken to hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
Ashli was not the only one in the Capitol Building but hundreds of others were too.
Which makes you think why did that officer single her out?

The New York Post covered the story and released these details:
The President Trump supporter killed in the Capitol building Wednesday was an Air Force vet from California who tweeted a day earlier how “nothing will stop us” and “the storm is here.”
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.
“I’m numb. I’m devastated. Nobody from DC notified my son and we found out on TV,” the husband’s mother, Robin Babbitt, told The Post, saying of her daughter-in-law, “She is a Trump supporter.”
The day before she was fatally shot — apparently by Capitol Police, Babbitt tweeted, “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.”
