Woman Critically Shot Inside Capitol Building [VIDEO]

The Independent reports:

A woman has been shot during the chaos inside the Capitol in Washington, DC after pro-Trump rioters stormed the building. Multiple reports emerged of a person being shot before a video was posted to Twitter showing the incident.

In the footage a shot is heard before people scatter and the victim is seen lying on the floor. Those nearby rush to her aid, and heavily armed law enforcement personnel move forward loudly reporting the news of an active shooter, appearing to focus their attention beyond a doorway.

MSNBC reports that the victim is in critical condition and has been rushed to hospital by the emergency services. Five other people have also been taken to hospital.
