CNN reported, Friday morning, the fifth victim of the riots in Washington. An officer died in hospital from wounds sustained in clashes while the crowd stormed the conference headquarters. Warsaw police said his name was Brian de Siknik and he died on Thursday in the neighborhood at 21:30 “of his wounds sustained while on duty”.
The deceased policeman was injured as a result of physical clashes with the demonstrators. The statement said he returned to his band’s office and collapsed. His death is being investigated by the Washington Homicide Department.
CNN reported that Sekinik joined the Capitol Police Department in July 2008. More recently he served in the department’s emergency department. The Capitol Police expressed their “deepest condolences to the family and friends of Officer Sicknick for their loss and mourned the loss of a friend and partner.”
