A Colorado man died after setting himself on fire outside the Supreme Court building on Friday.
Police said Saturday that Wynn Bruce, a 50-year-old man from Boulder, Colorado, had died from the injuries he suffered during the self-immolation, NBC News reported.
No one else was injured in the incident. Emergency personnel were called to the scene around 6:30 p.m. Friday. The Supreme Court was not in session at the time.
Several police forces in Washington, D.C., said they would investigate Bruce’s actions.
Self-immolation is often seen as an act of protest worldwide. It’s been most common in Tibet. The famous Arab Spring protests of 2011 were started by a man in Tunisia, Mohammed Bouazizi, who set himself on fire outside a government office.
