Sicknick was initially in critical condition [!] when reports of his death surfaced. But USCP confirmed in a statement that he died Thursday at about 9:30 p.m. USCP, the Metropolitan Police Department's Homicide Branch and federal law enforcement will investigate Sicknick's death.

"To honor Officer Sicknick's memory, we must ensure that the mob [!] who attacked the ["]People's House["] and those who instigated them are held fully accountable."
