Law enforcement officers escort the body of fallen U.S. Capitol Police officer William “Billy” Evans past the West Front of the Capitol during a procession to a funeral home on Wednesday.

On Friday, a man rammed his car into Evans, another officer and a barricade on Constitution Avenue, just outside the Capitol, and approached the officers wielding a knife. The suspect was shot by Capitol Police and died after being transported to the hospital, the force said. Evans died from injuries at the hospital.
