The Washington D.C. Medical Examiner today ruled that Ashli Babbitt's death is officially a "homicide"; the only one so far from the U.S. Capitol riots.
Three other deaths were deemed to be of natural causes and, in one instance, "accidental." Some media reports had incorrectly linked them to the rioters or even referred to the deaths as murders.
Babbitt was unarmed when she stormed the U.S. Capitol with a group in January after a pro-Trump rally, and started to climb through a broken window. She was shot and died at the scene.
Officials are still hiding the name of the shooter, without explanation.
