All times Eastern. Jan 07, 8:08 am Congressman recalls moment woman was shot inside Capitol building Rep. Markwayne Mullen, R-Okla., said he witnessed the moment a police officer fatally shot a woman inside the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, as Trump supporters stormed the building. Mullen said the shooting happened as an angry, pro-Trump mob that had been protesting outside broke into the Capitol building and attempted to force entry into the House chamber, which was still in session. 'They were trying to come through the front door, which is where I was at in the chamber, and in the back they were trying to come through the speaker's lobby, and that's problematic when you're trying to defend two fronts,' Mullen told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos in an interview Thursday on 'Good Morning America.'

'The mob was going to come through the door, there was a lot of members and staff that were in danger at the time. And when he [drew] his weapon, that's a decision that's very hard for anyone to make and, once you draw your weapon like that, you have to defend yourself with deadly force.' A U.S. Capitol Police officer in plainclothes fired his service weapon as 'multiple individuals' tried to gain access to the House room, striking a woman. She was transported to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead, according to Robert Contee, chief of the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia. Authorities have not yet released the woman's identity.

'That young lady's family's lives changed and his (the officer's) life also changed,' Mullen said. 'But what also happened is that mob that was trying to go through that door, they left. And his actions will may be judged in a lot of different ways moving forward, but his actions I believe saved people's lives even more. Unfortunately, it did take one though.' PHOTO: Rep.

Mullen said he 'never thought' he would witness such a scene unfold in the United States. 'I get people being passionate and being frustrated, but there's a right way and and wrong way to do things and yesterday was wrong. There was absolutely no excuse for it,' he said. 'We're very fortunate a lot more people didn't actually lost their life. One is way too many.'

Del. Derrick Evans took a video of himself and others rushing into the building after attacking Capitol police. In it, he is seen wearing a helmet and yelling, 'We're in! Keep it moving, baby!' Once inside, Evans walked around the Capitol Rotunda, which is filled with historical works of art, and yelled, 'No vandalizing!' He has since deleted the video from his social media. According to The Associated Press, State House of Delegates Speaker Roger Hanshaw said Evans will need to 'answer to his constituents and colleagues regarding his involvement in what has occurred today.' link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link
