Can you identify this insect/beetle found in Toronto, Ontario, Canada?

Asked May 26, 2016, 10:08 PM EDT

I found this beetle (?) by an open window in my house this afternoon. Is it native? Sized approx. 0.5 inch in length. What is it?
Thanks for your help! Hope the image is good enough... only had my phone handy.

That is not a beetle. That is a bug in the order Hemiptera, but because it is covered in "stuff" I cannot identify it.
