Air Force vet rioter posted Facebook video before she was killed while ...

The protester who was shot and killed while storming the Capitol posted an enthusiastic video on Facebook moments before her fatal confrontation with police. 

Ashli Babbitt, a 35-year-old Air Force veteran and fierce Donald supporter, died from a gunshot wound to the chest after she joined dozens of protesters who broke into the Capitol to protest Joe Biden's election victory on Wednesday. 

Minutes before they breached the building Babbit posted a video on her Facebook page in which she announced that there were 'three million' people present at the chaotic scene and declared: 'God bless American patriots.' 

A witness to the shooting suggested the San Diego local was shot by police when she tried to climb through a broken window to get into congressional chambers, and another said they saw other protesters trampled by the mob. 

DC Police Chief Robert Contee said four died at the protests on Wednesday – Babbitt shot by Capitol Police, and three others who died in 'medical emergencies.'

The video emerged on Thursday after DailyMail.com revealed Babbit's rap sheet, which included previous prosecutions for  reckless endangerment, malicious destruction of property and tampering with a car. 

Maryland court records show Babbitt had run-ins with law enforcement before – despite being a respected 14-year veteran, described as a 'boisterous firecracker' by a fellow soldier.

In July 2016 Maryland prosecutors charged Babbitt with two criminal misdemeanors of reckless endangerment and malicious destruction of property, and the traffic violation of willfully tampering with a vehicle without the owner's consent.

Police believed Babbitt, then named McEntree, was tampering with a 2012 Ford on a country road in Prince Frederick, a Maryland town South East of Washington D.C.

Though the court records reveal police found probable cause for the two criminal charges, Calvert County court acquitted her of the reckless endangerment charge, and the veteran was found not guilty of malicious destruction or tampering.

The criminal charges also list a complainant against Babbitt: her then-housemate Celeste Norris, 37.

Residency records show she was living with Norris and her future husband, former Marine Sergeant Aaron Babbitt, at the time.

Mysteriously, Babbitt was also the subject of a restraining order filed on the same day as her alleged offences. The court upheld the restraining order against her.

Records showing who filed the restraining order, termed a 'peace order' in Maryland, were not immediately available to DailyMail.com.

Babbitt was also subject to another temporary peace order filed against her in February 2017.

At the time, the 35-year-old was serving in the 113th Security Forces Squadron of the DC National Guard, and had been on at least eight deployments. 

Residency records show she was living with Norris and her future husband, former Marine Sergeant Aaron Babbitt, at the time. Babbitt traveled to Washington DC from her home in California alone, without her husband  (who is pictured above)

Babbitt was later stationed with the DC Air National Guard from at least 2014, where she moved in with her future second husband Aaron in Huntingtown, Maryland. But Maryland court records show the McEntees' marriage didn't end until August 2018 when they filed for divorce

Babbitt was later stationed with the DC Air National Guard from at least 2014, where she moved in with her future second husband Aaron in Huntingtown, Maryland. But Maryland court records show the McEntees' marriage didn't end until August 2018 when they filed for divorce

A Journal from the joint base Anacostia-Bolling in South West DC in March 2014 says she and 30 others were sent that year to 'support the security mission of U.S. forces in Southwest Asia for five months.' 

A veteran tweeted that she had served with Babbitt at the time, describing her as 'braggadocious, but likeable.'

'I deployed with Ashli McEntee in 2014,' the female veteran wrote, posting a picture of herself with the killed pro- protester. 

'She was a boisterous firecracker, who was always trying to be in the thick of things. Loud, cocky, braggadocious, but likeable. She deployed 9 times, today she was shot in the throat by Capitol Police while unarmed.'

Babbitt was born Ashli Pamatian, and was recorded as living under that name in North Pole, Alaska in her early adulthood.

She joined the Air Force in 2006, first serving at Eielson Air Force Base near Fairbanks, Alaska, where she met her first husband, Staff Sergeant Tim McEntee. 

A January 2008 photo on the base's website shows the couple with their adopted former military working dog, Sorbon.

Babbitt was later stationed with the DC Air National Guard from at least 2014, where she moved in with her future second husband Aaron in Huntingtown, Maryland.

But Maryland court records show the McEntees' marriage didn't end until August 2018 when they filed for divorce.

In June 2019, Babbitt married Aaron, who served as a Marine from 2000 to 2005 according to his Facebook page.

The bereaved former soldier told KUSI News on Wednesday his wife was a strong supporter of President and a great patriot to all who knew her. He did not respond to a request for comment from DailyMail.com.

Babbitt also appeared to be a supporter of QAnon, having posted a series of images to Twitter in early September, showing her attending a Trump Boat Parade in San Diego, wearing a tank top with the conspiracy group's logo and slogan

An unidentified loved one sent Babbitt a portentous text message as she flew to DC for the protest, according to an apparent screenshot from her phone shared on social media.

'Be safe. I cannot lose you,' the sender wrote.

Babbitt texted back a selfie from her airplane seat wearing a ' 2020' mask and wrote 'Tons of supporters on my plane!!!! I'll watch my 6' – using the military term for looking out
