The officer who shot and killed Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt has been suspended and the incident is currently under investigation.
Babbitt was shot in the neck near close range during the chaos in Washington yesterday during the storming of the Capitol building.
Images of the shocking incident make it clear that non-lethal measures could have been used against Babbitt, who served his country during a 14-year stint in the Air Force.

The officer who shot Babbitt, who was wearing a suit and was inside the Senate chamber when he opened fire, has been suspended pending an investigation.
US Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund also said there would be a “thorough review” of security measures following the incident.
Sund said in his statement that the officers acted “valiantly” against the rioters who “actively attacked United States Capitol police officers and other uniformed law enforcement officers with metal pipes, discharged chemical irritants and took other weapons against our officers ”.
As we pointed out earlier, some leftist commentators called on police to shoot Trump supporters before Babbitt was killed, while others gloated over his death on Facebook and Twitter.
Three other people died during the chaos, but authorities only revealed that they were killed as a result of “medical emergencies.”
Immediately after the shooting, mainstream media reporters such as Matt Fuller of the Huffington Post falsely claimed that Trump supporters were shooting in the bedroom, when the opposite was true.
