Officer Billy Evans, an 18-year veteran of the Capitol Police force, died from injuries in suffered in the collision.

Green was born in West Virginia, where he grew up in a large family, USA Today reported, and he graduated from Christopher Newport University in Virginia in 2019, where he was a defensive back on the football team.

The suspect shot dead after ramming his auto into barriers outside the US Capitol was identified by NBC News and other media outlets as Noah Green, a 25-year-old black man and reportedly a follower of the Nation of Islam.

The United States Capitol was locked down on Friday after a knife-wielding suspect identified as Noah Green rammed his auto into two police officers at the North Barricade and then emerged wielding a knife.

Brendan Green said his brother's mental health had been in decline in recent years. Police say he was shot by the officers as he left his vehicle and lunged at them with a knife.

Green made several posts on his now-deleted Facebook page detailing his personal struggles in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, The Times reported.

"I have been tested with some of the greatest unimaginable challenges in my life".

"To be honest, these past few years have been tough, and these past few months have been tougher", he wrote. "I am currently now unemployed, after I left my job, partly due to afflictions". In a March 17 post, he warned of the "last days of our world as we know it", NBC News reported.

Weeks before Friday's attack, Green said on social media that he thought the government was using "mind control" on him, CNN reported.

The platform said it had removed the 25-year-old's Instagram account, too.

Update: The suspect has been identified as a 25-year-old Nation of Islam follower named Noah Green of IN.

The prior week he posted on Instagram that he believed Farrakhan saved him from "terrible afflictions", he presumed were caused "by the Central Intelligence Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation", according to CNN.

According to Green's Facebook page, he was a follower of the Nation of Islam, a black nationalist interpretation of Islam that once counted Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali as members. Green's final Facebook post was on March 21, in which he posted a YouTube video titled "the crucifixion of Michael Jackson" featuring a 150-minute speech by Farrakhan. "We have designated the incident under our Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy, which means we have removed the suspect's accounts from Facebook and Instagram, and are removing any content that praises, supports, or represents the attack or the suspect".
