Officer killed after attack near US Capitol

Officer killed after attack near US Capitol 1

 

One US Capitol Police officer has died and another is injured after a suspect rammed a vehicle into a police barricade outside the Capitol building Friday afternoon, the department's acting chief Yogananda Pittman told reporters during a press briefing roughly two hours after initial reports of the attack first surfaced.
The officer was identified by Pittman later Friday as Officer William "Billy" Evans, an 18-year veteran of the force and a member of its "First Responders Unit."
"It is with profound sadness that I share the news of the passing of Officer William 'Billy' Evans this afternoon from injuries he sustained following an attack at the North Barricade by a lone assailant," she said in a statement shortly after telling reporters the name of the officer would not be released until his family was notified.
During the press briefing, Pittman said the suspect in the attack, who brandished a knife after ramming his vehicle into a police barricade on Constitution Avenue and was subsequently shot by officers, had also died.
Federal and local law enforcement sources told CNN that the suspect has been identified as Noah Green. One federal source told CNN he was 25 years old.
An investigation into the attack is ongoing, Pittman said, but the immediate danger appears to have subsided. USCP lifted an hours-long lockdown of the Capitol Friday afternoon after law enforcement determined the "external security threat" had been cleared.

      @GPlumbob So where did the money raised for them go? To ideas? Who do you guys think you are fooling when you say Antifa isn’t organized?

    • @Dragon Glib yes hes obviously stupid and also he wants to do his illegal crap and not be stopped by police officers. This is why the socialists want to defend police so we won’t have police at all.

      Want to see who it was? Google Noah Green. I guess he doesn’t fit CNN’s racist narrative. He “was” a Lous Farrakhan Hitman. But don’t believe me, Im sure CNN will eventually have to say who he was.

    Sigh. My heart goes out to all of those brave men and women.

  4. So sad rest in peace officer. Prayers for his family. This is horrible.

  5. Rest In Peace. Thoughts with the Officer’s Family and all those involved.

    It’s just crazy how the human brain can prioritize crashing a vehicle into a barricade over survival.

    • @Itz-venomtv When BLM Was Looting, The Trumpets Used To Say Blue Lives Matter, But Those Idiots Attacked Cops At The Capitol!

      Some Trump Supporters Are Against Each-other, Like Fools 🤣… LMAO 😂

      According to sources it was a black nationalist Farrakhan follower that attacked the US Capitol, and the reason why CNN and the rest of the leftist MSM has shut down reporting on it. Doesn’t fit their narrative.

      @Sheila Bush Let’s not bring politics into this. He was a jogger so he was criminal by default.

    • Very obvious… Trump’s Cult, QAnon, KKKAYE, Proud little boys, and the Terrorists are now working together to attack the Capitol and kill our HERO Police! #SupportBlue

    • @Sheila Bush Your the one still talking about Trump lol let it go weirdo LOL

      @A A Most Americans are white. Not for long though. 100 years blacks will be the majority.

    • @Robert Smith Nope in 50 years America will be mostly Latino and Asian. Black people like White people will get absorbed.

      @A A Good point. The way people are mixing the white American will no longer exist. Every commercial is interracial with every race combination and also lesbians & gays.

  8. First the attack on Epiphany, now an attack on Good Friday…I’m almost scared to see what happens on Easter. RIP brave officer.

      @MatthewGT And? You didn’t have that knowledge when you left your racist comment. We get it, you’re stoked he’s black to “fit your narrative” as you’d say. Except it wasn’t for the BLM movement, so your point means nothing lmao nice try though

    • @Ren Hippo Just listen to yourself. How can you tie Trump to this…?? I draw myself to the conclusion that TRUMP IS YOUR DADDY.

    • @Ren Hippo You love Trump very much and you can’t deny it. It is obvious.

    Jake Tapper… “We need to say the name of the slain officer, not his assailant” wonder if that would still apply if the assailants name was JimBob Whitey…

  11. Suspect is 25 yr old Noah Green from Indiana. He was a Nation of Islam follower based on his Facebook.

      @Modulus Five Funny how the most violent group with the highest murder rate has been convinced that they have been oppressed. They get every type of affirmative action and hand out possible and they still claim to be “held down by the man.” It’s rather pathetic.

    • Unstoppable Joe Dirt | April 2, 2021 at 10:20 PM | Reply

      @N.Y vs L.A You have the highest murder rate of any group. You also get the most handouts of any group. Still, you go on and on about being oppressed and held down by the man. It’s rather pathetic.

    • You mean Obama’s buddy that they censored a pic from? What’s his name Louis Farrakhan.

  14. Gee I wonder why the suspect’s face isn’t plastered all over mainstream media 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

      @Robert Smith yeah exactly
      it’s just sad how everything boils down to politics
      the guy lost his life and all people care about is arguing about politics

    • Robert Smith | April 2, 2021 at 10:57 PM | Reply

      @Brianna Perez Same with the Capital riots. Its 24/7 non stop on CNN.

    • @Robert Smith Exactly.Why isnt it racist when black ppl call each other that word ?? If it was such a bad word one would think they wouldnt use it when talking to eacher.

    • @Robert Smith Well, Democrats either sit at home and wait on their check to come to them or have family money and sit in their parents/grand parents basement. They don’t drive so they don’t care. It’s just another tax on the working man. But we’ll figure out a way to cheat it.

    • Brianna Perez | April 2, 2021 at 11:07 PM | Reply

      @Robert Smith it’s like that on any news station but also anywhere
      Fox and CNN are the worst
      But i was on a literal movie review about Spongebob and half the comments were political arguments

  15. When the police were reluctant to describe the colour of the guy,everyone knew he was not white.

    • CharlyDeamen | April 2, 2021 at 11:01 PM | Reply

      Yey, the usual brigade of media-trashing snowflakes, deluded to the point of thinking that just because they don’t like something, it’s automatically biased. And doubly so to think that the media ever NOT had a opinion. How positively precious!

    • @RapidHealth Fit lmao you kind of proved the OP right when what you posted didn’t mention the guys color TOO.

    • Man, you got it backwards.

    • @Tommy Willis you are right. They usually do not report it when whites commit crimes. They certainly do not let anyone file a criminal complaint against whites except other whites. I know that from first-hand experience

    • Exactly. In fact I even “guaranteed” my friend the murderer was black given the speed the possibility of terrorism was ruled out by the police spokesperson.

  16. Saddened by this senseless loss. Wishing the loved ones comfort during this difficult time.

  17. A salute and prayer to the officer, along with his family. #armystrong
