A video of the assassination of Ashley Babbitt during the storming of the Capitol has appeared.

A woman killed during the storming of the Capitol was hit by a bullet as she tried to climb through a broken glass door leading to an area known as the Presidential Lobby. This can be seen in published online videos, the Associated Press reported.

Minutes before Wednesday's shooting, a large crowd of angry loyalists of President Donald Trump stormed the Congress building. A group of protesters tried to make their way to the long corridor that led to the hall where members of Congress were to gather to approve the results of the presidential election.

One of the videos shows a man hitting the glass and drilling a hole. Others shouted insults at police officers and members of Congress across the door. Another video shows the woman peering through the broken glass when a shot is heard and she falls backwards.

Police in the Capitol identified her as Ashley Babbitt, a 35-year veteran of the United States Air Force.
