Reporter Tess Owens at Vice News believes she has identified a man wanted by the FBI for his role at the fatal January 6th insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
"The video shows a mob of angry Trump supporters rushing the media staging area by the Capitol chanting 'f*ck fake news,' stomping, kicking, and smashing camera equipment with sticks. 'Treasonous scum,' one livestreamer shouted. 'Here's a f*cking news story for you, you f*cking traitors.' The video, notable for its violence against the media, spread widely in the wake of the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol. Now, VICE News can report who was behind the camera doing the shouting: Gabriel Brown, 37, a Proud Boy supporter from Long Island, who is now wanted by the FBI for his alleged role in attacking the media," Vice News reported.
"Brown, who works in commercial shellfish harvesting, has been a fixture at fascist events on the East Coast for the last few years—including the violent Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville in 2017. The FBI released a still of Brown, in which he's labeled #Photograph 204: AOM" (an acronym for 'assault on media')," Vice explained. "The FBI regularly updates its library of wanted insurrectionists when one is arrested, and the Justice Department has a database of individuals who are facing charges. Brown does not appear to have been arrested, nor has he been identified by the FBI. The FBI declined to comment to VICE News other than to confirm that is is seeking the individuals pictured on its website."
