The man who drew a gun at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center on Monday previously called himself a “prophet of God” and said he does not obey man’s law.

U.S. Capitol Police said Larry Russell Dawson of Antioch, Tennessee, has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and assault on a police officer while armed. Dawson, 66, was shot by a U.S. Capitol Police officer and is hospitalized in stable but critical condition, according to police.

At a press conference outside the Capitol on Monday evening, U.S. Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa said that at approximately 2:40 p.m. Dawson “drew what appeared to be a weapon and pointed it at officers” during a routine screening at the Visitor Center. One officer fired and struck Dawson.
