When the incident occurred, police alerted staff members: "Due to an external security threat located All U.S. Capitol Campus Buildings, no entry or exit is permitted at this time", the alert reads. "You inspired me a lot".
Officer Billy Evans, an 18-year veteran of the Capitol Police force, died from injuries in suffered in the collision.
The U.S. Capitol Police stated that two officers received injuries after someone rammed a vehicle into the barricade along Constitution Avenue.
Referring to Green's now-removed Facebook and Instagram accounts, USA media outlets reported that the suspect was a supporter of Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam (NOI), a Black religious movement that actually has little to do with traditional teachings of Islam.
The suspect, 25-year-old Noah Green of IN, was shot and killed. "So, I ask that you keep our US Capitol Police family in your thoughts and prayers", Pittman said.
"Hardin has been charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority; disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds; disorderly conduct in the Capitol; and parading, demonstrating or picketing in the Capitol", said the report. "I have been tried with some of the biggest, unimaginable tests in my life".
The suspect also ostensibly thanked Farrakhan for saving him "after the awful afflictions" he "suffered presumably by the CIA and Federal Bureau of Investigation, government agencies of the United States of America". He moved out to his own apartment and then abruptly moved to Indianapolis, where he believed there were intruders getting into his apartment. In his most recent social media posts, Green wrote that he had been faced with "fear, hunger, loss of wealth, and diminution of fruit" in recent months, and was being sustained by faith "centered on the belief of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan as Jesus, the Messiah."He also alluded to more mainstream trappings of young adulthood".
According to his university biography, Green was one of seven sisters and two brothers. Older posts centered around football and college rather than religion. Green was shot and later died in the hospital, Pittman said during a news briefing. In a March 17 post, he warned of the "last days of our world as we know it", NBC News reported.
