Reports suggest possible identity of Ashli Babbitt killer

The identity of the Capitol police officer who fatally shot Ashli Babbitt on January 6 has been reported to soon be released. During an interview on Fox last month, Babbitt attorney Terrell Roberts said he believed the shooter was the same officer who left his loaded handgun in a public restroom on Capitol Hill back in 2019. Reports identified that officer as Lieutenant Michael Byrd.
