Alfredo Cuadros

Slain Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick is set to lay in honor at the U.S. Capitol.

The memorial Tuesday evening allowed colleagues and the lawmakers he protected to pay their respects and to remember the violent attack on Congress that took his life on January 6, 2021.

Sicknick died the day after a violent mob attacked the Capitol in an effort to overturn the election results in favor of then President Trump.

President Biden,  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and a handful of other congressional leaders also paid their respects.

Capitol Police say Sicknick was injured “while physically engaging with protesters.”

A final cause of death has not been determined.
