Hundreds of police officers and emergency response personnel lined the streets near the Capitol in Washington, D.C., overnight to honor a fallen U.S. Capitol Police officer.
The officers observed a moment of silence around midnight to honor Officer Brian D. Sicknick, the fourth member of the force to die since it was founded nearly 200 years ago, and the fifth death stemming from the riot.
Sicknick died Thursday at 9:30 p.m. following injuries during Wednesday’s rioting in Washington, and his death will be investigated as a homicide, Capitol Police said.
