The woman shot and killed while breaking into the outer hall of the U.S. House Chamber would have celebrated her birthday this weekend, according to her family. They held a party despite the woman being gone.

According to a video posted online, former President Donald Trump sent a message of support to the family, saying that her death would be remembered forever.

Trump then read her biography and said that she was shot upon entering the Capitol, which isn't true. Babbitt was shot after a group of people broke the glass into the House's outer chamber. Many people shouted, "gun! Gun! He's got a gun!" but Babbitt crawled through the window anyway. That's when the officer fired. A Trump flag was used in an attempt to stop the bleeding.

"There was no reason Ashlii should have lost her life that day. We must all demand justice for Ashli and her family," said Trump.
