"Officer Sicknick was responding to the riots on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, at the U.S. 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," the statement read.
Sicknick had joined the Capitol Police in July 2008, and most recently served in the department's First Responders Unit.
"The entire USCP Department expresses its deepest sympathies to Officer Sicknick's family and friends on their loss, and mourns the loss of a friend and colleague," Capitol Police said.
Sicknick is the fifth person to die as a result of Wednesday's insurrection. One woman was shot and killed by Capitol Police as the crowd breached the building and three others suffered medical emergencies that proved fatal.
Shortly after 1 p.m. ET Wednesday hundreds of pro-Trump protesters pushed through barriers set up along the perimeter of the Capitol, where they tussled with officers in full riot gear, some calling the officers "traitors" for doing their jobs.
About 90 minutes later, police said demonstrators got into the building and the doors to the House and Senate were being locked. Shortly after, the House floor was evacuated by police. Vice President Mike Pence was also evacuated from the chamber, where he was to perform his role in the counting of electoral votes.
An armed standoff took place at the House front door at about 3 p.m. ET, and police officers had their guns drawn at someone who was trying to breach it.
As a result of the episode, US Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund is resigning. He said in a statement earlier Thursday that Capitol Police and other law enforcement officers were "actively attacked" with metal pipes and other weapons.
"They were determined to enter into the Capitol Building by causing great damage," Sund said.
"The violent attack on the U.S. Capitol was unlike any I have ever experienced in my 30 years in law enforcement here in Washington, D.C.," he added. "Maintaining public safety in an open environment -- specifically for First Amendment activities -- has long been a challenge."
Still, lawmakers say they are perplexed at the lack of preparedness among law enforcement given that it had been known for weeks that Trump was promoting a rally he said was aimed at preventing the certification of Biden's win.
Rep. Mike Quigley, an Illinois Democrat who was locked in the House chamber during an armed standoff between Capitol Police and a rioter, praised the officers who were in the building that put their lives on the line, but made clear that they were outnumbered and law enforcement was under prepared.

"The Capitol Police I was around did an amazing job under difficult circumstances," Quigley told CNN. "My concern wasn't with how valiant the Capitol Police were. It was that an hour before the debate started, I looked at the throngs of people surrounding different sections of the Capitol and said, we don't have enough security."
Quigley added: "I'm no expert in security, but you can tell we were out-manned in an hour before the debate," referring to Congress' proceedings to certify Biden's win.

Watch VP Pence confirm 2020 election win for Joe Biden hours after mob breaches Capitol

WASHINGTON – Standing in a Senate Chamber that had been swarmed by a mob incited by President Donald Trump just hours earlier, Vice President Mike Pence certified the results of the 2020 Electoral College vote, confirming President-elect Joe Biden's win.

The statement from Pence came at 3:41 a.m. ET, capping off a historic joint Congressional session that was interrupted for several hours when a mob broke through Capitol defenses and sent the building into lockdown. Four deaths and more than 50 arrests were linked to the insurrection, including a woman who was shot by the U.S. Capitol Police.

"The announcement of the state of the vote by the president of the Senate shall be deemed a sufficient declaration of the persons elected president and vice president of the United States," Pence said. 

Pence certified what has been known for weeks: that Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris won the 2020 presidential election with 306 Electoral College votes, beating out the 232 votes for Trump and Pence.

Trump had pushed Congress to object to the certification of the results and wrongly claimed Pence had the power to block the process and overturn the election.

Pence, in a rare break from Trump, said he could not alter the outcome of the Congressional vote.

The vice president confirmed the transition of power will come on Jan. 20, 2021, the day of Biden's inauguration.

Trump, who had previously refused to concede the election, committed to an "orderly" transition of power just moments after Pence certified the Electoral College results on the Senate floor.

Trump issued the statement through a White House staffer Dan Scavino's Twitter account after the president's personal Twitter and Facebook accounts were locked hours earlier.

Some lawmakers in the House and Senate objected to the Electoral College results, but they lacked enough support to have an impact on the outcome.
