Capitol police officer left dead after vehicle ramming in D.C.

The U.S. Capitol went into lockdown on Friday afternoon when a vehicle attempted to run down the barricade on the capitol grounds, killing one Capitol Police officer and wounding another, according to Breitbart News.

Staffers were told they couldn’t enter or exit the buildings beginning at just after 1 p.m. local time and the lockdown lasted into the evening before updates indicated the buildings were able to return to business as usual. 

The suspect was shot by police after exiting their vehicle and brandishing a knife. He was then transported to a hospital for medical treatment before reportedly succumbing to his injuries. 

It just after 2 p.m. when Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued statements about the attack and nearly 3 p.m. when it was reported that the attacker was unknown to Capitol Police. 

At 4:15 Capitol Police identified the fallen officer as Officer William ‘Billy’ Evans:

“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. 

“Officer Evans had been a member of the United States Capitol Police for 18 years …”  

At 4:56 P.M. President Joe Biden issued a statement saying, “Jill and I were heartbroken to learn of the violent attack at a security checkpoint on the U.S. Capitol grounds, which killed Officer William Evans of the U.S. Capitol Police, and left a fellow officer fighting for his life. 

“We send our heartfelt condolences to Officer Evans’ family, and everyone grieving his loss. We know what a difficult time this has been for the Capitol, everyone who works there, and those who protect it …”

Forbs reported at 6:52 p.m that the suspect was identified as 25-year-old Indiana native Noah Green.

Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can’t trust how direct it was once I attempted it out. This is my essential concern…:) For more info visit any tab on this site Thanks a lot GOOD LUCK………._ http://www.works91.com

The white House has fallen, no leadership there to be found, Invaders at our southern border, ridden with unchecked viruses, invasion of illegals still not being stopped. What real effect will this have on our Country, Senate and House want to spend and tax, yet, what will this really change? Where is all this division heading? Why is it being allowed to be happen? Country needs leadership now, to resolve these real issues, is it no where to be found? Elected leaders have left the field of battle. Who will step up and confront the challenges? Contact your officials and let your voice be heard today. Every one has equal say, not just partisan politicians. Some time a call to battle must be heard in between elections, call Washington today and let your voice be heard.

Not going to happen. The Democrats own and control elections. As long as the welfare checks and food stamps keep coming, it would take a nuclear blast to get Schumer and Pelosi out of their seats. We may never again see a Republican in the White House or a Republican controlled Congress. I predict that by the end of this decade, we will have a one party government.

Why isn’t the media making this a racist issue? Williams was white and Noah Green was black. If Williams was black and Green was whiteBLM and antifa would be burning down more cities.

More people are killed with hammers and blunt objects than guns but they don’t want to band hammers. This country has became so ignorant they can’t see the light of day.

Who are the dems going to blame the terrorist attack on this time, conservatives, Trump followers, republicans? do they think the soros paid terrorists of antifa and ISIS from the ME developed by Obama and the KSA brought here by obama as ME refugee Sunnis are not going to be found out? As soon as we get some real honest and reliable law enforcement and patriotic, for the Constitution get togather, we’ll see some of this corrected, EH?

Just another planned attack to ensure a reason for a lock-down and keep the NG there. We did not have these problems in the past. When blm and antifa began their terror it has only multiplied, not subsided. Just a way to curtail our human and civil rights in the name of progress.

Who picked the victims to further their lies? Pelosi? Schumer? Biden? They cannot blame it on Trump any more, so let’s lay the blame on the real culprits…the demonrat party and their wish for a one world nazi government where they sit in their fancy “castles” and demand everybody kowtow to their every whim!!!!!!
