Paul Kovacik

Kovacik is seen entering through the doors with the crowd. He appears to have come to the event by himself and remains mostly by himself as he walks through the Capitol, filming others with a cell phone.

He is inside the building for approximately 12-15 minutes.

Please keep in mind that in the United States, every citizen charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
