The riots began earlier today after outgoing President Donald Trump attended a rally outside the Capitol where he made more false claims about what he calls a "rigged election."

Multiple outlets broadcasted footage of Trump supporters breaking into the Capitol, hanging Trump flags off the side of the building, and driving U.S. politicians out of the Senate and Congress chambers.

During the rioting, at 3:34 p.m., The Washington Post reported that a woman had been shot in the chest after the mob had breached the Capitol.

Just before 6:30 p.m., CNN reported that the woman had died.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has decried the violence taking place in the United States right now, tweeting that he is "deeply disturbed and saddened" by the day's events.

NDP leader Jagmeet Singh went one step further and personally called out Donald Trump.
