A Georgia man who was arrested in relation to his involvement in the Capitol Hill riot last week has committed suicide, according to WXIA. He was one of four men from Georgia who had been charged for playing a role in the riot.
According to Fulton County Medical Examiner, Christopher Stanton Georgia from Alpharetta, Georgia died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest. He was found dead in his home on Saturday.
He was charged with attempting to “enter certain property, that is, the United States Capitol Grounds, against the will of the United States Capitol Police,” according to documents from the Superior Court of DC.
Christopher, along with a group of other men, was initially arrested for violating the municipally-imposed curfew. They were arrested outside at 7:15 pm, over an hour after the 6:00 pm curfew.
Christopher’s death remains “under investigation,” and authorities have since removed two rifles from his home.
