Several Arizonans were arrested after a mob of President Donald Trump’s supporters raided the Capitol — and Washington, D.C., police said they were looking for an Arizona man spotted in the U.S. Capitol shirtless, in a painted face and a fur bonnet. 

A crowd of protesters turned violent Wednesday and stormed the Capitol at the urging of Trump. One person was shot and killed inside, and three others died of other causes during the hours-long takeover, police said.

The insurrection delayed, but did not ultimately thwart, Congress from certifying the presidential election of Democrat Joseph Biden. 

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser ordered a 12-hour citywide curfew for the district beginning at 6 p.m. on Wednesday to get protesters away from the Capitol.

Metropolitan police said Thursday they were asking for the public’s help to find several people of interest.

“Anyone who can identify these individuals” was asked to contact the department.
