Capitol Police reveal identity of officer killed in car ramming attack
U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) have released the identity of the officer killed in Friday’s car attack at the U.S. Capitol.
“It is with profound sadness that I share the news of the passing of Officer William ‘Billy’ Evans this afternoon from injuries he sustained following an attack at the North Barricade by a lone assailant,” acting USCP Chief Yogananda Pittman said in a press release in the late afternoon.
“Officer Evans had been a member of the United States Capitol Police for 18 years,” she continued. “He began his USCP service on March 7, 2003, and was a member of the Capitol Division’s First Responder’s Unit. Please keep Officer Evans and his family in your thoughts and prayers.”
