As news breaks the attacker was a follower of radical Nation of Islam, Facebook appears to have deleted the attacker page.

Noah Green was a follower of radical Islam and not a white supremacist like the media first reported.

The suspect shot dead after ramming his car into barriers outside the US Capitol has been 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.

Green allegedly drove a car into security barriers outside the US Capitol on Friday afternoon, injuring two Capitol Police officers, one fatally. Police say he was shot by the officers as he left his vehicle and lunged at them with a knife.

Despite their investigation being in its early stages, police say they have so far ruled out terrorism as a motive.

While police have not released any details about the suspect in the immediate aftermath of the attack, information obtained by NBC News identified him as 25-year-old Noah Green of Indiana. The African-American man was earlier seen being carried away from the scene of the attack on a stretcher by paramedics, and died shortly afterwards.

Green’s Facebook and Instagram accounts were deleted immediately after the NBC story broke, but screenshots purportedly showing some of Green’s posts have circulated online. Media reports have also added further detail about his online activity.

In the weeks leading up to the attack, Green wrote on Instagram that the US government was targeting him with “mind control,” also claiming he had “terrible afflictions” that were “presumably caused by the CIA and FBI, government agencies of the United States of America,” according to CNN.

On Green’s Facebook page, moreover, he indicated that 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. Its current leader, Louis Farrakhan, often draws media attention with his anti-Semitic speeches.
