SALT LAKE CITY – U.S. Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) today released the following statement regarding the loss of United States Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who passed away due to injuries sustained while on-duty responding to the riots on Wednesday, January 6.
“I am heartbroken by the death of Officer Brian Sicknick in the line of duty as he was protecting the U.S. Capitol and all of us inside the building. I join my colleagues and our entire Capitol Hill community in mourning this needless and tragic loss, and I pray for comfort for his family, friends, and fellow officers. Given that this is being investigated by the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch, the United States Capitol Police and their federal partners, I hope the perpetrator who claimed Officer Sicknick’s life is brought to justice.”
