Woman shot inside U.S. Capitol as mob entered building illegally has died from wounds

A woman shot inside the U.S. Capitol during the mob siege Wednesday died, the Washington Post reported.

The newspaper reported that the woman, who was not identified, was apparently shot as a crowd inside the Capitol broke past barriers and entered the inner sanctum of the federal government.

The woman can be seen in a video posted on social media in which what appears to be a gunshot is heard, then the woman placed on the ground.

A spokesman for the D.C. police told the newspaper the woman died at a hospital.
