‘This is how I’m going to die’ - Fourth police tell panel of trauma of Capitol attack before he commited suicide



A fourth police officer who responded to the US Capitol riot during the 6 January insurrection by extremist supporters of Donald Trump, has been confirmed dead.


Washington DC’s Metropolitan police department (MPD) confirmed late Monday that another of their officers, Kyle DeFreytag, died by suicide earlier in July, just hours after declaring that MPD officer Gunther Hashida killed himself on 29 July.


In January MPD officer Jeffrey Smith, a 12-year veteran of the force, and Capitol police officer Howard Liebengood, a 16-year veteran, both of whom also responded to the 6 January attack, died by suicide.
