Ashli Babbitt was the 35-year old Trump supporter from California who was shot dead by a U.S. Capitol Police officer during the January 6 riots.
Babbitt was unarmed when she was killed. She marched to the Capitol with a crowd after the giant rally, held to draw attention to alleged 2020 election fraud.
The officer's name is being kept secret. Prosecutors have said they do not have evidence that would justify charging him with any crime.
An attorney for Babbitt's family says he will be filing a civil lawsuit against the U.S. Capitol Police and the officer, who will be named in the lawsuit. He is reportedly an African-American lieutenant; Babbitt was white.
