Satan's rule over us is up", the 25-year-old's apocalyptic post said, linking to an article from Final Call, the official newspaper of the Nation of Islam.Green's social media posts suggest he was spiraling in the lead up to the attack on Friday".

He was a quiet athlete and was not violent, people who knew Green told USA Today, but they were concerned about changes on his social media posts in recent months, including growing support for Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam.

Authorities have yet to confirm a motive behind the incident, but Robert Contee, acting chief of the DC Metropolitan Police Department, said the incident "does not appear to be terrorism-related".
