The man who pulled a gun on police officers on Capitol Hill today has been identified as a Tennessee man who caused a disturbance at the House of Representatives.
Larry Dawson, 66 years old, interrupted a House session last October, yelling from the balcony that he was a “Prophet of God.” Apparently, the police are familiar with him.
Dawson was captured today after drawing his weapon at the Capitol Visitors Center and shooting an officer. The suspect was shot and later taken to a hospital. The incident is being investigated as a “criminal act,” but not one linked to terrorism.
That’s not stopping idiots on Fox News from using today’s incident to call for more patrolling of Muslim neighborhoods.
