In a statement blasting former President Trump and his allies on the one year anniversary of the Capitol riot, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker mistakenly attributed the death of a Capitol Police officer to the day’s events.

Baker paid tribute to officer William Evans, lauding his heroism and bravery on January 6 as supporters of then-President Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol. 

However, Evans was killed on April 2 when Noah Green, a 25-year-old supporter of Louis Farrakhan, drove into the officer at a barricade outside the Capitol building. Green, a self-identified “Follower of Farrakhan,” had likened the anti-Semitic leader of the Nation of Islam to “Jesus” on his Facebook profile.
