JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) issued a statement Friday on the death of U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick.

He died on Thursday after being injured by pro-Trump supporters as they stormed the nation’s Capitol on Wednesday in protest of Joe Biden’s certification as President. According to the Associated Press, Sicknick was hit in the head with a fire extinguisher during the riots.

In a tweet, Senator Hyde-Smith said she is heartbroken for Sicknick’s family and other fellow officers.

Sicknick is the fifth person to die because of the violence.
