Suspect, 66, Larry Dawson of TN, has called himself ‘prophet of God’
The suspect in the Capitol shooting one caused a disturbance in the House of Representatives.
The suspect, 66-year-old Larry Dawson, interrupted a House session last October and yelled that he was a “Prophet of God” from the balcony. Authorities said he was “known to police.”
Dawson was captured on Monday after drawing his weapon at the Capitol Visitors Center and shooting an officer. The suspect was shot and later transported to a hospital. The incident is being investigated as a “criminal act,” but not one linked to terrorism.
