WASHINGTON, D.C. – A lone assailant attacked the U.S. Capitol on Friday, striking two officers with vehicle, killing one.

Just after 1 PM Friday, April 2, a man in a blue sedan rammed his vehicle into the North Barricade at the U.S. Capitol, striking 2 USCP officers. The Department immediately locked down the Capitol Campus. The man exited the vehicle with a knife and ran toward our officers. At least one officer, drew their weapon and shot the suspect. One USCP officer was transported by a USCP cruiser to the hospital. The second USCP officer was transported by DC Fire and EMS. The suspect was also transported by DC Fire and EMS to the hospital where he succumbed to his injuries around 1:30 PM.

One of our officers involved in the incident, Officer William ‘Billy’ Evans, passed away. Officer Evans had been a member of the United States Capitol Police for 18 years. He began his USCP service on March 7, 2003, and was a member of the Capitol Division’s First Responder’s Unit.

The other USCP officer who was struck by the car is in stable and non-threatening condition.

The investigation is ongoing, Capitol Police say. CNN is reporting that the suspect has been identified as Noah Green and he is 25 years old.
