The driver who killed a US Capitol cop before he was gunned down by police is a Nation of Islam devotee from Indiana, according to reports and his social media.
Noah Green, 25, who may have been living in Virginia, described himself as a “Follower of Farrakhan” on his Facebook page, in reference to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
Green allegedly slammed into a fence outside the US Capitol just after 1 p.m. Friday and struck two officers before crashing into a barricade.
Green allegedly got out of the car with a knife and lunged at an officer before being fatally shot, reports say.
One of the officers, 18-year veteran William Evans, died at the hospital. The other officer is being treated at an area hospital.
