WATCH: Congress honors slain Capitol Police officer

Slain U.S. Capitol Police Officer William “Billy” Evans will lie in honor in the Capitol Rotunda on Tuesday during the second such memorial ceremony this year for a force that has edged close to crisis in the wake of the Jan. 6 insurrection.

President Joe Biden, congressional leaders and members of the U.S. Capitol Police spoke at the ceremony.

Evans, 41, was killed April 2 when a vehicle rammed into him and another officer at a barricade just 100 yards from the Senate side of the Capitol.

Full video of the ceremony is below.
