Capitol Hill Shooter Caught on Camera Lying in Wait for Ashli Babbitt

The Capitol Hill shooter was caught on camera lying in wait for his victim before he murdered Ashli Babbitt of San Diego, California as she toured the United States Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. The video is embedded below. The shooter appears to be a white male in a black business suit with a handgun. Unfortunately, his face is not visible, but he does appear to have a widow’s peak or pattern baldness, so he is probably at least 30 years old.

Lying in wait is defined as “to hide and wait for the right moment to make an attack” – Merriam Webster (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/lie%20in%20wait). The shooter, who is believed to be a Capitol Police officer, can be seen hiding behind a barricade in a doorway to the far left of Babbitt. He gives no warning or otherwise do anything to inform Babbitt, who was on the far right behind other people, that he was there. He just hid there and said nothing. She most likely tried to climb through the window on the right side of the door with no idea that there was an armed man in the doorway to the far left behind the barricade. Her killer clearly intended to kill anyone that came breached the door and had no intention of giving anyone notice let alone a warning that probably would have saved her life. Lying in wait is often used as an aggravating factor under various murder laws capable of elevating lesser killing to first degree murder because it proves premeditation.

Ashli Babbitt was a 35 year old Air Force veteran that served the country for 14 years. She was supporter of President Donald Trump and a believer in Q-Anon theory.

  1. Or, y’know, he could’ve been worried that the first person who Jack in the boxes through a smashed window may have a gun, so he was doing his job to protect the Capitol members inside. I mean, that’s the job he was trained for.

    1. Wrong, I am former Police. You are specifically trained that you never discharge your weapon unless you or someone else’s life is in eminent danger. That guy committed murder of an unarmed civilization.

      1. You can say you’re former police, I can say I’m the governor of California. Apparently we both are liars. This was not murder, this was some asshat insurrectionist breaking and entering into a government building during a riot. She deserved to get shot, go pretend you know what you’re talking about somewhere else. Its a shame more of those dishes weren’t shot. Hopefully they all serve prison time. They will be felons, unable to vote or own a gun. You think that shit head Trump cares one shot about any of them? Will he pay their legal bills? He’s going to be dealing with legal issues the rest of his life for this. I hope he serves time.

  2. And… That Capital Hill Cop/Shooter is defending one of the many Choke Points located within the capital building…

  3. You are specifically trained that you never discharge your weapon unless you or someone else’s life is in eminent danger. You are taught that you never fire a warning shot and if you shoot, you shoot to kill never shoot to wound.v That officer committed murder of an unarmed civilization and should be charged for it. The victims family should sue the officer and the department for failure to follow their own protocol. All departments follow those same rules.

  4. These people were let in by capittal hill police there is video evidence this was a set up in my book anf yes tney were wrong period but to lie in wait not seeing if your in danger who or what your aiming at is wrong at tje least he shoul get manslaughter.
