Officer killed in attack near US Capitol identified as 18-year veteran

The US Capitol cop killed by a maniac who slammed into officers outside the building Friday was identified as 18-year veteran William Evans.

“It is with profound sadness that I share the news of the passing of Officer William ‘Billy’ Evans this afternoon from injuries he sustained following an attack at the North Barricade by a lone assailant,” Acting U.S. Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman said.

Evans joined the department in 2003 and served as a member of the Capitol Division’s First Responder’s Unit.

Noah Green, 25, who is also dead, plowed into Evans and another unnamed cop just after 1 pm. Friday.

The other officer is recovering at a nearby hospital.
