The woman who was shot and killed during the pro-Trump storming of the US Capitol has been identified, according to local news reports.
Ashli Babbit of San Diego, a 14-year veteran of the US Air Force, was struck by a bullet after she entered the legislative complex with rioters.
Fox 5 reports that Ms Babbit’s mother-in-law identified her on Wednesday evening and KUSI spoke with her husband.
Ms Babbit’s husband did not travel to Washington, DC with her.
“I really don’t know why she decided to do this,” her mother-in-law told Fox 5.
