The DOJ will not charge the Capitol police officer who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt, as reported by CBS News.

Babbitt was inside the Capitol and trying to climb through a door window on January 6 when the officer on the other side fired a shot that turned out to be fatal.

The investigation was unable to find enough evidence to support charging the officer, per a report on CBS News.

An investigation found insufficient evidence to support criminal prosecution and determined that the officer could reasonably believe it was necessary to shoot Babbitt out of self-defense or in defense of those evacuating the House Chamber.

Babbitt, a 35-year-old from Ocean Beach California, was part of a mob that attempted to break through doors that led to the Speaker's Lobby, an area near the Chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives, where Capitol Police had been evacuating members from the House Chamber.

Multiple videos posted to social media depicted the tense scene where Babbitt was shot, as a mob used flagpoles, helmets and their own hands to smash through doors, which Capitol Police had barricaded in an effort to block the crowd from reaching the evacuating House Members.

In video, Babbitt can be seen climbing through the doorway when a shot rings out. The Justice Department said a Capitol Police officer fired one round from his service pistol, striking Babbitt in the left shoulder.
