A man who lit himself on fire outside the United States Supreme Court Building has died, according to reports.
Wynn Bruce, 50, of Boulder, Colorado, died Saturday, a day after he set himself ablaze in Washington, D.C., the Metropolitan Police Department told Fox News. The incident happened around 6:30 p.m., and Bruce was airlifted to a nearby hospital.
A spokeswoman for the Supreme Court said on Friday that Bruce’s death was “not a public safety issue.”
