The family of Ashli Babbitt is set to sue the U.S. Capitol Police and the officer who shot her dead during the January 6 Capitol riot.
They will seek at least $10million and will serve Capitol Police within 10 days, the family's lawyer Terry Roberts told Zenger.
The civil suit from the family follows an April 14 decision by federal prosecutors not to charge the officer after months of deliberation.
Police summoned medical help to evacuate Babbitt, who was pronounced dead soon after at Washington Hospital Center.
'And he has plenty of other officers there to assist with arrest,' he said, referring to the officer who shot Babbitt. »
