A Georgia man who  was arrested and charged due to his involvement in the storming of Capitol Hill on Jan. 6 has committed suicide, WXIA reports. He was one of four men from the state of Georgia who had been charged for their role in the riot.

Christopher Stanton Georgia of Alpharetta, Geor., died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest according to the Fulton County Medical Examiner. He was found dead in his home on Saturday.

Georgia was charged with attempting to "enter certain property, that is, the United States Capitol Grounds, against the will of the United States Capitol Police," read documents from the Superior Court of DC.

Georgia was initially arrested among a group of other men who refused to return to shelter after being found in violation of the municipally-imposed curfew. They were arrested found outdoors at 7:15 pm, over an hour after the 6:00 pm curfew began.

Police have since removed two rifles from the man's home while his death is "under investigation."

Pro-Trump rioters breached Capitol Hill on Jan. 6 as lawmakers were forced to flee the scene or shelter-in-place. Congress was meeting to certify the 2020 election results. The riot resulted in five deaths and property damage to the Capitol Building.
