Green was shot by police after he crashed into a barricade and struck two U.S. Capitol Police officers, got out of the car and ran towards officers with a knife. He later died, Acting U.S. Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman said.

U.S. Capitol Police Officer William ‘Billy’ Evans also died after the incident. Another officer, who hasn’t been identified, is stable.

"The FBI Indianapolis Field Office is providing support and assisting our law enforcement partners as needed," Chris Bavender, public affairs specialist for the FBI Indianapolis Field Office, said.
