The January 6th congressional "showdown" in Washington, D.C., descended into chaos when protestors breached security and forced their way into the U.S. Capitol Building. Hundreds of men and women, who reportedly had attended a pro-Trump rally earlier in the day, could be seen breaking into America's "Seat of Government," confronting Capitol Police, entering the House and Senate chambers, and demonstrating against the results of the 2020 presidential election. News reports indicate that a young woman who was shot inside the Capitol was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
