The casket of the Capitol police officer, William Evans, who was killed in a car-ramming attack, arrives to lie in honor at the US Capitol. Officer William "Billy" Evans was killed near the US Capitol on April 2.
Slain U.S. Capitol Police Officer William "Billy" Evans was lauded for his dedication to country, love for his job and for a mischievous sense of humor as President Joe Biden and congressional leaders honored him during a memorial service Tuesday.
Evans is lying in honor in the United States Capitol Rotunda in a special tribute to the fallen officer. He was killed earlier this month in an attack near the Senate side of the Capitol building, where he and another officer were manning a barricade.
Evans' casket was placed in the Capitol Rotunda for the second such memorial ceremony this year for a force that has edged close to crisis in the wake of the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol.
