On Wednesday, a violent mob of Trump supporters gathered in Washington, D.C. to show their support for the, “Stop the Steal” march, which echoes baseless claims of Donald Trump stating the election was stolen.
In Los Angeles, Trump supporters also gathered to show their support of the same sentiments.
According to the Los Angeles Times, about 200 people gathered near the Los Angeles Police Department headquarters in Downtown LA.

“A crowd of about 200 gathered near Los Angeles Police Department headquarters, waving American flags and chanting, ‘Do your job,’ as officers tried to control the crowd. Police declared an unlawful assembly of the gathering about 1 p.m.”
Additional officers were dispatched and eventually deemed the gathering as “unlawful,” according to a video.
As previously reported, hundreds of protestors gathered around the perimeter of the Capitol and proceeded to push through barriers, while tussling with officers in full riot gear. About 90 minutes later, police said demonstrators got into the building and the doors to the House and Senate were being locked. Shortly after, the House floor was evacuated by police, CNN also reports.
As of now, a woman who was reportedly part of the mob of Trump supporters was shot. No other details of her injuries are available at this time.
