Police said the injured officer is already in a "stable and non-threatening condition".

No sooner had a suspect been shot and taken to hospital in Washington DC than pundits and bluecheck talking heads pinned the attack on a "white nationalist".

Green, originally from IN, died after being shot and injured by the Capitol Police, who responded to the attack. My thoughts and prayers go out to the officer's family and the entire Capitol Police force. After disobeying verbal orders, he lunged at the officers, at which point the officers fatally shot the suspect.

According to Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman, Noah Green exited his vehicle with a knife.

Green, a 2019 college graduate of Christopher Newport University, wrote several posts on his now-pulled Facebook account detailing his personal struggles amid the COVID-19 pandemic, The New York Times reported.

Friends and family told The Post they were anxious about his mental health in recent years.

In mid-March, a Facebook post from Noah Green read that he was "unemployed", after leaving his job, "partly due to afflictions, but ultimately, in search of a spiritual journey", The Post reported.

"Frankly, the past few years have been hard, and the past few months have been much more than that", he wrote. "I am now unemployed, and I partially quit my job due to pains".

Green made Facebook posts about the "end times" and the anti-Christ, according to The Times. In a March 17 post, he warned of the "last days of our world as we know it", NBC News reported.

In Instagram stories, some posted just hours before the attack, Green blamed the USA government for his issues and wrote he believed federal law enforcement agencies were trying to conduct mind-control experiments on him, according to CNN.

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.

"The U.S. Government is the #1 enemy of Black people!"

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.

In his post on social media weeks before the attack, Noah Green said these past few months have been tougher, and he had been tried with some of the biggest unimaginable tests in his life.

The most recent post was a YouTube video of a 2009 Louis Farrakhan speech titled, "The Crucifixion of Michael Jackson".
