The U.S. Capitol is in lockdown after a vehicle crashed into the gate surrounding the building. "You inspired me a lot", the text reportedly read. That message-and the deadly attack that occurred less than 24 hours later-capped off a period that was riddled with red flags.
Officer Billy Evans, an 18-year veteran of the Capitol Police force, died from injuries in suffered in the collision.
Earlier, acting US Capitol Police (USPC) Chief Yogananda Pittman said at a press briefing that two individuals died in Friday's attack on the US Capitol, including the suspect and a police officer who was injured in the incident.
In Instagram stories, some posted just hours before the attack, Green blamed the USA government for his issues and wrote he believed federal law enforcement agencies were trying to conduct mind-control experiments on him, according to CNN. "So, I ask that you keep our US Capitol Police family in your thoughts and prayers", Pittman said.
Green was taken into custody but died a short while later.
The suspect also ostensibly thanked Farrakhan for saving him "after the bad afflictions" he "suffered presumably by the CIA and Federal Bureau of Investigation, government agencies of the United States of America".
According to various reports, Noah Green, 25, played football and ran track at Glenville State College before transferring to Christopher Newport University in Virginia.
"My faith is one of the only things that has been able to carry me through these times and my faith is centered on the belief of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan as Jesus, the Messiah, the final divine reminder in our midst".
According to his university biography, Green was one of seven sisters and two brothers. The Minister is here to save me and the rest of humanity, even if it means facing death", he wrote on March 17, before ominously ending the post with, "We have a little time."Court records in IN, where he was once listed as living at an Indianapolis address, show that he sought to change his name recently". In December 2020, he filed a petition to legally change his name to Noah Zaeem Muhammad.
