Do you live near a body of water? This is a Stonefly, an insect with an aquatic larval form. It is harmless. We surmise it accidentally found its way into your closet. Here is a BugGuide image for comparison.
Yes, we have a small stream running through our property. I am glad to know what this is, as I was terrified it was a roach. Thank you for your quick response as well.
