This is a Predatory Stink Bug known as a Brochymena. You can find additional information on BugGuide, which states: “Predatory on other insects, especially caterpillars. May feed some on juices of leaves as well” and that it is generally found in “Spring, fall (adults overwinter, so adults typically absent in mid-summer) .” Since adults hibernate, they may enter homes in the fall.
