Twitter made the counterproductive move of locking President Donald Trump out of his Twitter account and removing a video he had posted urging his supporters “to go home” after rioters broke into the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.
Shortly after the proceedings began in Congress to count the Electoral College vote, agitators made an incursion into the Capitol building, forcing the complex to go into lockdown.
Capitol Police responded to the break-in with teargas and other shows of force.
KUSI-TV reported that Trump supporter Ashli Babbit from San Diego was shot and killed in the Capitol. The circumstances surrounding the shooting of the Air Force veteran are under investigation, the Washington Metropolitan Police Department said.
#KUSINews has confirmed the identity of the woman shot and killed inside US Capitol.
