One of the people who was shot and killed was an Army Veteran from California, Ashli Babbitt. A day earlier, Babbitt had tweeted, “Nothing will stop us….they can try and try and try but the storm is here and it is descending upon DC in less than 24 hours….dark to light!” In addition to Babbitt, two men in their 50s and one woman in her 30s died after various medical emergencies, according to D.C. Mayor Murel Bowser and D.C. Metropolitan Police Chief Robert Contee, who held a press conference following the attack. Kevin Greeson, a 55-year-old from Alabama who advocated for violence online, had a heart attack during the insurrection from “excitement,” his wife claims. Benjamin Philips and Roseanne Boyland are the other known deaths thus far. Details about their deaths are sparse as of publication time.
