Reportedly two weeks ago I thrust his car Noah Green killed one of the two police officers guarding the US Capitol and posted an article on his Facebook page titled “Pauses Before the Storm.”

“As we know, during the last days of our world, the prestigious introduction of Elijah Muhammad and his sacred warning were directed to all of us. Satan’s to us. Domination is up, “said a 25-year-old apocalyptic post linked to an article from. Final call, Official newspaper of the Islamic state.

Green’s social media post suggests that he was spiraling up to Friday’s attack.On the eve of his alleged assault, his brother, Brendan Greene, said Washington post, After leaving the apartment they lived with, he sent a worrisome text.

“Sorry, I just go and live and be homeless. Thank you for everything you did. I respected you as a kid. You gave me a lot of inspiration. I read the text, according to what was reportedly.

The message, and the deadly attack that occurred within 24 hours, ended the period full of danger signals.

Green’s social media post describes a search for “spiritual journeys” within the Islamic state, a religious sect of Islam. Southern Poverty Law Center It is classified as a hatred group because of its “strange theology of innate black dominance over whites” and “deep racist, anti-Semitic, anti-homosexual rhetoric.”

Neither a clear motive to target the police nor the US Capitol, a few hours from Virginia, which he recently called home, showed anything.

However, when Congressional staff had lunch on Friday, Green allegedly thrust his dark blue sedan into two police officers guarding a road barricade outside the Capitol.

He then jumped out of the car and rushed into the policeman with a knife, said Yogananda Pittman, police chief of the US Capitol, urging them to shoot him deadly. High-ranking law enforcement officials have confirmed to The Daily Beast that Green is the suspect, but he has not yet been officially identified by police. One Capitol police officer, William “Billy” Evans, died and a second police officer remained in the hospital. He was said to be in a stable condition late Friday.

Mr Pittman said the suspect was unknown to Parliamentary police before the attack and there were no signs of “some connection” to the House of Representatives. She also said there were no ongoing threats and the suspect shouted nothing before being shot.

She said it did not appear to be “terrorist-related” while the motive investigation was underway.

The motive remains a mystery, and further insights into the causes of such attacks were found in a series of 25-year-old social media posts created in the weeks leading up to the incident. In two long March 17 posts to Green’s Facebook profile that were deleted shortly after the incident, Green wrote about his recent struggle and meeting Islamic state leader Louis Farrakhan was the “main goal.” Said that.

There were no immediate signs that Friday’s attack was religiously motivated, and Islamic Virginia and DC headquarters did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Green also admitted recently suffering from unspecified setbacks in his life.

“Honestly, the last few years have been tough, and the last few months have been even harder,” Green wrote in a post on March 17th. “I was tested on some of the biggest and unimaginable tests of my life. I’m currently unemployed after quitting my job due to pain, but I’m finally looking for a spiritual journey . “

Despite his lack of work, he posted an image of a certificate showing that he had donated $ 1,085 to the Islamic State as a gift for “Savior’s Day 2021”.

Green’s brother, Brendan, Position Noah became paranoid in 2019 and accused his football teammates of giving him medicine at Xanax. He suddenly moved to Indianapolis after moving to his apartment. There, he believed that an intruder was invading his apartment. It was around that time that Brendan said he had jumped out to see his brother and realized that he was “incorrect.”

Recently, his brother said he suggested that he had greened up and moved to Botswana, jumping in front of the car and trying to kill himself.

After he returned home, Noah Green seemed to see the Islamic State as a way to keep himself fixed.

In a recent social media post, Green faced “fear, hunger, loss of wealth, and fruit loss” in recent months and was “supported by faith centered on the beliefs of Honorary Minister Lewis.” I am writing. Fara Khan as the Savior Jesus. “

He also hinted at a more mainstream trap in his youth. He posted that he graduated with excellent grades, graduated from college, and earned a graduate degree “despite not growing up in the best possible conditions.”

Green played soccer in high school, And, according to a background at Christopher Newport University, he was born in Fairy, West Virginia, and has seven brothers and two sisters. Calls to his brother and parents were not answered on Friday.

According to official records, he enrolled in a graduate course at Florida State University this year after majoring in marketing at Glenville State College.

In Christopher Newport’s biography, he said his dream vacation spot was Jamaica and the person he most wanted to meet was Malcolm X.

“He was always very kind to me and all his friends loved him. We were all sad to see him leave Glenville,” said the suspect’s friend The Daily Beast. Told to.

At one point, Green wrote that he experienced a “series of concerns” that he believed was “a side effect of the drug I was taking unknowingly,” perhaps alluding to the suspicion of the 2019 incident. ..

He also said he was on track to start a business, but his path was “blocked.”

From his Facebook page it was unclear how recently he was involved in the Islamic State. Old posts focused on football and college rather than religion. His grandmother, who died of a long illness in 2019, was her obituary, Baptist. Said..

But by March, Green’s post appeared to have been consumed by religious warnings about the last days.

“I study the apocalypse, the signs of the end, who the beast is, who the Antichrist is, who is the false prophet, to all. It is advisable to study what and the images created in those times. The Minister here to save me and other human beings, even if it means facing death. I’m here, “he wrote on March 17.

Indiana court records, which once stated that he lived at an Indianapolis address, show that he recently tried to change his name. In December 2020, he filed a petition to legally change his name to Noah Zaeem Muhammad.

However, after he was unable to attend the hearing earlier this week and the court apparently had no contact from him, the matter was dismissed and the case was declared “finished.”
