Kevin Greeson of Athens is among four people who died during yesterday’s riots at the U.S. Capitol.
Washington D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee said that Greeson died from a “medical emergency” during the event.
News outlets report the victims died as a mob of pro-Trump protesters breached the Capitol building while Congress was in the process of ratifying the electoral votes from the 2020 presidential election. One of the dead included a woman who was shot by the U.S. Capitol Police.
Greeson was a senior sales representative at Allied Mineral Products in the Huntsville-Decatur area. He attended John C. Calhoun State Community College in the early-90s.
Greeson was more vocal on Parler, calling for armed action to support his cause.
His son, Kyler Greeson, wrote on Facebook that his dad died from a heart attack.
At least 14 people were arrested in connection with yesterday’s riots, including Lonnie Coffman, a 70-year-old from Falkville, Alabama. News outlets report, Coffman was carrying a firearm and “materials to make several Molotov cocktails.”
