The driver who killed a U.S. Capitol cop before he was gunned down by police is a Nation of Islam devotee from Indiana, according to reports and his social media.
Noah Green, 25, who may have been living in Virginia, described himself as a “Follower of Farrakhan” on his Facebook page, in reference to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
Green appeared to have come on hard times from his Facebook page reviewed by The Post before his account was taken down.
“I was on the right track and everything I had planned was coming into existence. It required long hours, lots of studying, and exercise to keep me balanced while experiencing an array of concerning symptoms along the path (I believe to be side effects of drugs I was intaking unknowingly),” he wrote on March 17, signing the message Brother Noah X.
“However, the path has been thwarted, as Allah (God) has chosen me for other things. Throughout life I have set goals, attained them, set higher ones, and then been required to sacrifice those things,” he continued.
His Facebook posts were first reported by MSNBC, which read them on-air.
Green allegedly slammed into a fence outside the U.S. Capitol just after 1 p.m. Friday and struck two officers before crashing into a barricade.
Green allegedly got out of the car with a knife and lunged at an officer before being fatally shot, reports say.
One of the officers, 18-year veteran William Evans, died at the hospital. The other officer is being treated at an area hospital.
