Aaron Bushnell of the U.S. Air Force dies after he lit himself on fire

The active duty U.S. Air Force member who set himself on fire in front of the Israeli Embassy has died of his injuries, the Metropolitan Police Department confirmed on Monday.

Aaron Bushnell, 25, of San Antonio, lit himself on fire in front of the embassy on Sunday afternoon. First responders took him to a hospital, where he later died, the MPD said.

Bushnell began livestreaming to Twitch as he approached the embassy, declaring that he “will no longer be complicit in genocide,” a person familiar with the matter told the Associated Press. The person was not authorized to publicly discuss the details of the investigation and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.
