Officer Billy Williams to lie in stateU.S. Capitol Police Officer William Evans, who died after Friday's attack at the U.S. Capitol, will lie in honor next week in the Capitol rotunda, according to congressional leadership.

Evans was an 18-year member of the force and served on the agency's First Responders Unit.

“The United States Congress joins all Americans in mourning the tragic death of one of our Capitol Police heroes, Officer Billy Evans,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. “In giving his life to protect our Capitol and our Country, Officer Evans became a martyr for our democracy. On behalf of the entire Congress, we are profoundly grateful.”

The tradition of using the Capitol rotunda to pay tribute to distinguished Americans began in 1852, but historically that honor has been given to military officers and elected officials who have "lain in state." More recently, Congress has allowed citizens to "lie in honor."
