A Georgia man who traveled to Washington, DC to participate in the MAGA protests killed himself with a gunshot blast to the chest.
Christopher Stanton Georgia, 53, was found deceased in the basement of his Alpharetta, Georgia home on Saturday, Jan. 9.
Georgia's wife called 911 to report there was "blood everywhere." He died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest. The Fulton County examiner ruled Georgia died by suicide.
Georgia was arrested on January 6, the day of the riots, for violating the District of Columbia's 6 p.m. curfew.
Georgia also faced misdemeanor charges of attempting to enter the U.S. Capitol grounds, "against the will of the United States Capitol Police."
Family members described him as being depressed and "extremely distressed," according to a police report.
Officers removed two semi-automatic SKS rifles from Georgia's home. Georgia was a regional portfolio manager at BB&T bank.
He faced 180 days in jail and fines up to $1,000 for the misdemeanor charges. Georgia was the second suicide linked to the Capitol riots.
