MORGANVILLE, NJ, April 2, 2021:
On Good Friday, April 2nd, 2021 the U.S. Capitol complex was placed on lockdown after a vehicle attempted to ram through a police barricade, killing one Capitol Police Officer and wounding another, according to law enforcement sources. These sources tell the NPDF that the suspect tried to ram a police barrier near the US Senate Office side of the Capitol, then exited the vehicle with a knife and was shot and killed by Capitol police. The driver Noah Green, 25, who killed US Capitol police officer Evans before he was gunned down is a Nation of Islam devotee from Indiana, according to reports.
Officer William ‘Billy’ Evans was a member of the United States Capitol Police for 18 years. He began his USCP service on March 7, 2003 and was a member of the Capitol Division’s First Responder’s Unit. At this writing his body is being escorted with honors from George Washington University Hospital to the Medical Examiner’s office.
The National Police Defense Foundation, under the leadership of our Executive Director Joseph Occhipinti, would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt condolences to family of PO Officer Evans and to the Capitol Police Department. The killing of a police officer is an attack on society as a whole and it shakes us to our core. Since the summer of 2020 adversaries of law enforcement, including some who are closely protected by Capitol Police Officers, have shown outright hostility toward the very law enforcement officers who put their lives on the line daily to protect the same people who are calling for their defunding! Those officers commit to protecting the public and our political representatives without concern for race, religion or political affiliation. They are the true centurions who represent the very best that America has to offer, and the NPDF recognizes and applaud their sacrifice.
The National Police Defense Foundation has taken an active role in helping to identify and apprehend anyone who shoots or kills a police officer. The NPDF offers a ten-thousand-dollar reward ($10,000) for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone who shoots or kills a member of the law enforcement community. In June of 2020, the NPDF Executive Board took the unprecedented step of expanding the Safe Cop reward program to include rewards for the arrest and conviction of any protestor/domestic terrorist who assaults a public safety officer by using a vehicle or by an act of arson after previous attacks on Capitol Police and others.
