The woman was shot earlier Wednesday as the mob tried to break through a barricaded door in the Capitol where police were armed on the other side. She was hospitalized with a gunshot wound and later died.
Various reports identifield her as Ashli Babbitt, an Air Force veteran from San Diego, though some spelled her last name as Babbit. Fox 5 San Diego reported that a man identifying himself as her husband told the station she had been killed.
D.C. police officials also say two pipe bombs were recovered, one outside the Democratic National Committee and one outside the Republican National Committee. Police found a cooler from a vehicle that had a long gun and Molotov cocktail on Capitol grounds.
