A shocking tragedy awoke America after a woman was shot dead inside the US Capitol during violent protests. The woman was first identified as Ashli Babbitt after KUSI News spoke to her husband. Speaking to the local network, Aaron Babbitt called her a “strong Trump supporter” and “a great patriot to everyone who knew her.” As per recent updates, the Metropolitan Police Department is investigating her death.

A fatal bullet hit Babbitt's chest when hundreds of Donald Trump supporters entered the Capitol building to overturn his election defeat. Amid the heated commotion and chaos, video footage captured the gunshot and she crumbled to the ground. Although official confirmation is yet to be made, reports say she was shot by Capitol Police, according to law-enforcement sources in a report by The New York Post.

In the interview with the local network, Aaron also revealed that he stayed home to operate a business the couple owned that day. Meanwhile, his wife, who believed in Trump and wanted to protest along with Trump supporters, traveled to the infamous rally-turned-riot. 

Not just her husband but other family members also spoke about the shock. “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.” Aaron's brother Justin, said everything was “pretty surreal,” adding, “It’s hard because we haven’t been officially notified.”

Who is Robin Babbitt?

Expressing sorrow after the tragedy, Robin paid condolences from her Twitter handle — @Melissa65211685 — and her tweet caught many eyeballs. In just a few minutes, it collected over 10,000 likes and 7,000 retweets. Not much is known about her but she joined the microblogging platform in November 2020. “The location reads Texas and her bio says, Mother, Sister, Registered Nurse.” 

“Can't stop crying... I already miss you Ashli. For those who don't know, she's my daughter-in-law. She was such a wonderful(ly) kind person, and a serious military woman. Strong, Smart, Kind. If you see this please RETWEET to share and keep us in your prayers. Follow me for update,” Robin tweeted.



 

 

In no time, thousands paid their condolences to her loss. “Robin, we are all crying for you. She wasn't only a loss to you, she was a loss to US. I have no words. May G-od send you comfort and healing. America will not forget Ashli Babbitt,” one tweet read and another said, “I am so sorry for the loss to you and your family. A beautiful woman, so young and that has served this nation, heartbroken to hear this. I pray your family gets justice. I pray that God gives you strength only He can right now. May she Rest In Peace.” 



 



 

 

Apart from that, she hasn't tweeted much from her account. One of her retweeted posts reads, “Ashley Babbitt is being characterized as an extremist. George Floyd is praised as a hero. There's something terribly wrong with America.”

Another said, “Here's Ashli Babbitt, the unarmed young woman shot and killed today, presumably by police, during a protest at the Capitol. She's an Air Force veteran with 14 years service from San Diego. This is who @ewerickson wanted shot today. He got his wish. Happy now Erick?”
