The US Capitol police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man in photos they have circulated who is wanted in connection with the death of Officer Brian Sicknick.
The man, shown on the left panel of the above official photo, is white, appears to be late-middle-aged with a salt-and pepper beard, and is heavy-set. He was wearing a dark blue knit cap with the letters "CFD" in yellow at the front.
"Officer Sicknick was responding to the riots at the US Capitol and was injured while physically engaging with protesters. He returned to his division office and collapsed. He was taken to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries," said the Capitol Police.
Authorities are also conducting an autopsy in order to positively determine the cause of death for Sicknick, who died at age 42 after having served for 12 years with the Capital Police.
Virginia's Gov. Ralph Northam said during a statement on Friday that "Officer Sicknick was killed while doing his job—defending those trapped in the Capitol building amid a violent attack on our democracy.
"His death is a tragedy, and those responsible must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. My prayers and those of the entire Commonwealth go to his family, his loved ones, and his fellow officers who work every day to protect the seat of American democracy from those who would seek to destroy it.”
