Auto rams Capitol barricade, 1 police officer killed; driver shot dead

One officer killed after driver rams into US Capitol barricade

The suspect, identified as Noah Green, was shot dead by police after allegedly jumping out of the auto with a knife and attempting to attack an officer with it.

U.S. media said officials had identified the attacker as Noah Green, a 25-year-old Black man from IN and an adherent of the black nationalist Nation of Islam movement. Our officers then engaged that suspect.

Dozens of police cars, marked and unmarked, raced toward the Capitol building.

Mr. Biden released the statement from the Camp David president retreat, where he is spending the weekend.

The vehicle attack at a U.S. Capitol checkpoint that left one police officer dead and another injured does not appear to be terrorism related, the acting chief of the Metropolitan Police Department said Friday. "The suspect did start lunging toward US Capitol Police officers, at which time US Capitol Police officers fired upon the suspect". They further added that the suspect did not appear to wrestle with the police officers. The suspect was shot and died at the hospital.

"I'm heartbroken for the officer killed today defending our Capitol and for his family". The suspect died at a hospital.

Capitol Police say the lockdown is "due to an external security threat". Large sections of fencing that secluded much of the surrounding area for months have only begun to come down in recent weeks.

"This has been an extremely hard time for U.S. Capitol Police", Pittman said at a news conference on Friday afternoon, noting the attack underscores that the Capitol Hill remains a potential target for violence.

Citing four law enforcement officials, NBC News later identified the suspect as 25-year-old Noad Green of IN, though he may have been living recently IN Virginia. It's unclear which member of law enforcement shot the suspect.

The incident caused the Capitol to be placed on lockdown, and witnesses recorded a US Park Police helicopter landing in the plaza east of the building, between the Capitol and the US Supreme Court. Both of the Capitol Police officers received emergency medical attention. But the hallways were mostly empty despite the chaos outside.
