The Justice Department released videos showing rioters attacking Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick with a chemical spray during the Jan. 6 insurrection.
Sicknick, who was trying to fend off rioters at the U.S. Capitol, died the day after the attack. He had two strokes, and his death was deemed “natural.”
The videos are being used as evidence in the case against two men accused of assaulting Sicknick and other officers.
The videos includes surveillance and body camera footage taken during the siege.
Media outlets were given access to the videos, which still aren’t available for broadcasting.
The Justice Department recently said it anticipates charging more than 500 people in connection with the riot.
The riot led to the deaths of five people, and more than 130 officers were injured.
