The US Capitol Police officer who died in the DC riots was a President Trump supporter from New Jersey who served in the military — including a deployment to the Middle East — before joining the force.
Brian Sicknick, 42, died Thursday, a day after collapsing when he returned to his division office following the attack on the Capitol, according to the USCP, which said he was injured “while physically engaging with protesters.”
Two sources told The New York Times that the officer had been struck with a fire extinguisher.
