Vice President Kamala Harris released the following statement after an attack at the U.S. Capitol Friday that killed one police officer, William Evans and wounded another.
In an inexplicable act of violence, a brave US Capitol Police Officer, William Evans, was killed in the line of duty while another officer fights for his life. Officer Evans made the ultimate sacrifice to protect the Capitol. Our hearts go out to his family and loved ones.
