Man Drives Car Into US Capitol Barricade Killing 1 Officer

Updated: Apr 5


What Happened:

  • On Friday, a 25 year old man rammed his car into a barricade outside the US Capitol, directly striking two officers. He then emerged from the car wielding a knife before he was shot by authorities. The suspect, identified as Noah Green, later died in the hospital.

  • One of the officers struck by the vehicle, Officer William Evans, passed away from the injuries, making him the seventh US Capitol Officer to die in the line of duty.

  • Authorities are investigating Green to try and determine the reason for the attack. Green is a self-proclaimed follower of the “Nation of Islam” and said he had been going through a difficult time in recent online posts, but no direct reason has been found thus far.

  • The US Capitol has remained on heightened alert since the Jan 6 riot in which nearly 140 Capitol officers were injured. A tall security fence was established around the Capitol earlier this year to provide extra protection.
