One Capitol Police officer died and another was injured after a suspect rammed a vehicle into a police barricade outside the Capitol building Friday afternoon and exited his vehicle with a knife.
The killer, later identified as Noah Green, was shot dead by police at the scene.
Noah Green is a devout Muslim and follower of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
He recently was given an award from the Nation of Islam.
Noah Green committed this terrorist attack on Good Friday, one of the holiest days on the Christian calendar.
The media is only tweeting the Capitol terrorists name “Noah Green from Indiana” without a photo, the fact he attacked on Good Friday or the fact that he’s a rabid follower of Louis Farrakhan + Nation of Islam. Why aren’t they giving the details they’d normally give? pic.twitter.com/6wjMn1wgT3

The DC police do not believe the incident was terrorist related.
That seemed like a pretty quick assessment?
The Heavy reported:
Chief Robert Contee of Washington Metropolitan Police said in the afternoon press conference that the homicide unit is taking over the investigation in connection with the “shooting death that occurred as well as the officer’s death.” He said there was not an “ongoing threat.”
Contee said it doesn’t appear to be terrorism-related but police will continue to investigate. MSNBC reported that police don’t believe Green was tied to a larger plot, at least preliminarily.
The attack left two Capitol police officers with injuries, according to the police.
