One Capitol Policeman was killed and another was wounded. The suspect also died.
The deceased was William F. Evans, who worked for the Capitol Police Station for 18 years.
The suspect was identified as 25-year-old Noah Green from Indiana. On his Facebook page, he said that he was struggling with the pandemic and that he was a follower of the leader of the Islamic State, Louis Farrakhan.
According to the Chief of the Congressional Police, Green rammed his vehicle into two police officers, then got out of the vehicle and attacked them with a knife.
The Capitol closed at about 1 pm, and the police announced that the threat was “eliminated” after an hour and a half.
The Congress is in an adjournment, so most lawmakers are not in the Capitol, but many workers are in the Capitol. President Biden is also not in Washington and left for Camp David this morning.
The identity of the second police officer will not be released until his family is notified.
