NPR and WaPo report that woman shot in DC has died.

I have not found any source that identifies the woman or who shot her, or why. One person interviewed by NPR thought it was DC police who shot the woman as she pushed to enter the Capitol, but did not have confirmation of that.

1. Meh. Unless she was law-abiding and not trying to storm the building,

I don't really care.

3. It might be worth caring about if

she becomes a martyr to the terrorist cause and they rally around her death.

Aside from that, her death is on Trump's hands for inciting this riot and shows how deadly his coup attempt is. Beyond disrupting Congress in progress, threatening them, and causing destruction of federal property, it has now cost someone her life.

If she was part of the mob, then yes, she brought it on herself. But the loss of life is always a risk in a riot and Trump now has yet another death on his hands.

2. It seems like Meal Team 6 sent her in thru broken window of House door first rather than themselves


Something I saw on DU (I added MT6). Unconfirmed.

4. She was supposedly trying to shove a bag through a broken doorway window to the House chamber.

With the Capitol police being on the other side, well, they did what they had to do in that situation and shot her before she could put who-knows-what in the room with them. What if it were a bomb? They don't know and didn't have the time to investigate.

I believe I saw a post to a tweet that had NBC footage and images of this. The word was that she'd been shot in the neck after trying to push a colorful bag through the broken window of a door.

6. Thanks for that info.

Of course they had to act quickly. They did what they had to do if this is how it happened. I heard that she was shot in the chest, though.
