United States police officer dies following clash with pro-Trump mob”

Sicknick returned to his division office and collapsed, the report said.

He was taken to hospital and later died. Before joining the Capitol Police, he proudly served as a Staff Sergeant in the New Jersey Air National Guard where he displayed leadership and courage as a member of the 108th Security Force Squadron, 108th Wing, at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, and, after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, deployed in Operation Enduring Freedom and Desert Shield.

U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund has announced that would resign this month after he faced criticism for failing to prevent supporters of President Donald Trump from storming the building.

Lawmakers offered their condolences to Sicknick's family, including from House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., who has credited Capitol Police officers with saving his life during the congressional baseball shooting in 2017. One woman was shot by law enforcement while she was entering the Capitol, and the other three died from "medical emergencies" according to police.

Shortly after 1 p.m. ET Wednesday hundreds of pro-Trump protesters pushed through barriers set up along the perimeter of the Capitol, where they tussled with officers in full riot gear, some calling the officers "traitors" for doing their jobs.

About 90 minutes later, police said demonstrators got into the building and the doors to the House and Senate were being locked.

Earlier Thursday, police released a document showing all of the people who have been arrested for "unrest" violations since last spring, when protests and rallies first began in the wake of the death of George Floyd.
