2022-08-14: A man drove his car into a barricade near the U.S. Capitol early Sunday and then began firing gunshots in the air before fatally shooting himself.

The incident happened just before 4 a.m. at a vehicle barricade set at East Capitol Street NE and 2nd Street SE in Washington.

The man, whose identity has not been released, crashed into the barricade and that as he was getting out of the car, the vehicle became engulfed in flames. The man then opened fire, firing several shots into the air as police approached.

The man shot himself as the officers neared. He was later pronounced dead.

Investigators located addresses for the man in Delaware and Pennsylvania and have learned he had a criminal history in the past decade, though his motive remained unclear and he had no links to the Capitol.

we should keep this guys memory alive as a role model for suiciding shooters.

Could get creative, convince people you can kill god by shooting at the sky and encourage it.

shakes fist after firing "take dat you ebil mass murding feeb god, take dat and DIE!"

This of course is not my own view and this view should of course only be infoked to minimise mass shooting causualties.

God can take it.
