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.

On Friday night Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told Wolf Blitzer on CNN that Friday’s attack on the Capitol was “one of the results” of the Jan. 6 riot.
The Daily Caller reported:
McCabe told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer “it’s not uncommon to have people who are suffering from some form of mental illness or emotional distress” to go to places like the Capitol, the White House or the FBI headquarters to air their grievances or delusions. He gave an example of a woman in 2013 who was shot when she drove her car from Connecticut to the White House and tried to drive through a checkpoint.
“I think what’s different here is you’re seeing the playing out of not just a mental illness, but a grievance against the government,” the former FBI director continued. “I would suggest that is one of the results of what we saw on January 6th.”
