Huge update.

Terry Roberts, the Babbitt family attorney, has officially identified who shot Ashli Babbitt.

He says the shooter was Lieutenant Michael Leroy Byrd.

Byrd’s attorney did not deny it.

From Newsweek:

For more than seven months, the U.S. Capitol Police officer who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed protester climbing through a broken window in a hallway of the U.S. Capitol on January 6, has remained anonymous.

Though his name was known to U.S. Capitol Police, congressional staffers and federal investigations, no one would divulge it. The secrecy fueled months of online speculation.

Babbitt’s family alleged a coverup.

“The U.S. Congress wants to protect this man. He’s got friends in high places and they want to protect him,” said Maryland attorney Terry Roberts, who represents the family. “And they’ve done a pretty good job of it. … I don’t think it’s a proud moment for the U.S. Capitol Police or the U.S. Congress.”

Roberts told Zenger Wednesday night that the shooter was “Lieutenant Michael Leroy Byrd.”

Byrd’s attorney, Mark Schamel, did not dispute the positive identification. It adds to information from other sources who told Zenger in recent months that Byrd was the January 6 shooter. None of them would say so on the record.

This name has been floating online for months and was likely known to have been the shooter.

It is now confirmed.

Byrd will be interviewed tonight on Lester Holt:
