The police officer who fatally shot a woman participating in the pro-Trump invasion of the U.S. Capitol will reveal his identity for the first time in a televised interview set to air Thursday evening.
The interview on NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET, is set to air three days after the U.S. Capitol Police Department announced that it would not discipline the officer following an internal investigation of the Jan. 6 shooting.
The Department of Justice previously said it would not pursue criminal charges against the officer, whose identity has not been disclosed.
The family of the woman, 35-year-old Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, has vowed to file a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against the police department and the officer who fired the gun.
A lawyer for Babbitt’s family did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment on the interview.
