Edward Jacob Lang

Photos and social media posts show Lang was present at the Capitol on Jan. 6th, documenting his experiences.

Witness Phillip Andersen said Jake Lang called on others in the outdoor archway to push police away from the crowd with fallen shields after they began hurting people.  Lang said he witnessed a woman being killed by police and claims he was shot in the foot.
