An Athens mans was among the three people who died from "medical emergencies" during the disturbance at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, a District of Columbia police official said today, and Capitol Police said a Falkville man was arrested.

The Athens man was identified as Kevin Greeson, 55, by Robert J. Contee III, acting chief of the the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department.

A fourth person died after being fatally shot by police.

The other two people who died from "medical emergencies" were identified as Rosanne Boyland, 34, of Kennesaw, Georgia; and Benjamin Phillips, 50, of Ringtown, Pennsylvania.

Contee would not go into detail about the exact causes of their deaths and would not say if any of the three was actively involved in breaching the Capitol building on Wednesday.

Contee would only say that all three “were on the grounds of the Capitol when they experienced their medical emergencies,” according to The Associated Press.

Capitol Police arrested 14 people Wednesday. Among them was Lonnie Coffman of Falkville, according to a police statement. He was charged with carrying a pistol without a license, possession of an unregistered firearm and possession of unregistered ammunition.

I read elsewhere that he had a taser in his pocket that repeatedly discharged causing his heart attack and death. Sad.
