We found this the other day and it looks kinda like an ant of some sort then it flew away…
You encountered a Checkered Beetle in the family Cleridae, and it appears to be Enoclerus ichneumoneus based on an image we matched on BugGuide. The family page on BugGuide contains this information: “predaceous on other insects, larvae mostly on wood- and cone-borers; some adults feed on pollen; a few species are scavengers.“
