Lieutenant Michael Leroy Byrd, according to him, is the shooter.
What I don’t get is why you’ve decided to come out now.
Why did they suddenly believe this man’s life was not in jeopardy? Particularly in light of the current political atmosphere.
People now have less trust in law enforcement and state officials than ever before after it was proven that there was no insurgency…..
So, why would they reveal this guy’s identity right now?
It doesn’t make any sense, but there are a lot of things that don’t make sense.

The shooter’s identify was disclosed by Newsweek.
Roberts said race was “clearly a factor” in the decision to shield Byrd from public scrutiny.
“It’s something that has to be considered, because it’s just a clear pattern in the United States,” he said. “A white cop kills a Black individual? Their name is out there within a day. It’s all public. And look, a police officer is a public official. There should not be any exception for this.”
U.S. Capitol Police officials, police union representatives and government officials had repeatedly claimed that disclosing the officer’s identity would put his life and his wife’s in danger—and subject them to racial slurs. Lt. Byrd’s family roots are in Jamaica, according to one of his neighbors.

According to this report from The Hill, Byrd was not exactly a model officer:
The commander of cops on the House side of the Capitol, according to Capitol Police, left his service weapon unattended in a lavatory, where it was recovered by another officer.
Lt. Mike Byrd will be examined, according to a department spokesperson, after his Glock-22, which has no manual safety to prevent unintentional discharge, was discovered “during a routine security sweep” in a lavatory by another officer on Monday.
“The Department takes these problems very seriously, and has a very rigorous process in place to investigate and assess instances like these, as well as hold staff accountable for their actions,” said a spokesperson for the department.
