A Donald Trump fan, Christopher Stanton Georgia has reportedly shot himself in the chest and was found dead by his wife after he was arrested for his Capitol riot.
Christopher Stanton Georgia, 53, was charged last week for his involvement in Wednesday’s Capitol chaos, 11-Alive reported.
His wife found him on Saturday morning in the basement of their home and told police there was “blood everywhere.”
According to the report, Christopher was found with a gunshot wound to the chest. A medical examiner ruled that the Alpharetta, Georgia, man died by suicide, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Police reportedly confiscated two semi-automatic SKS rifles from Georgia’s home.
On the day of the Capitol riots, Georgia had stayed out past the 6 pm curfew after police officers told Trump fans to leave around 7:15 pm, court documents showed.
He was charged with attempting to “enter a certain property, that is, the United States Capitol Grounds, against the will of the United States Capitol Police,” the police report states.
Georgia faced a maximum penalty of a $1,000 fine and/or up-to 180 days in jail.
