Sicknick was killed during the attack on the Capitol.
During the "Capitol Insurrection" on January 6, 2021, we have heard of several individuals who were killed, died, or took their own lives. A hostile crowd or mob of mostly Caucasian individuals stormed and took control of the halls, offices, and floor of Congress at the Capitol. The Capitol Police were ill-prepared, under armed (if at all), and slow in received frequently requested backup. The head of the Capitol Police resigned soon afterwards.
Let's take a look of those who died during and in the wake of the storming of the Capitol.
The deaths resulting from and in the wake of the January 6, 2021 events include:
Brian D. Sicknick

A woman was fatally shot by a US Capitol Police employee as the mob tried to force its way toward the House Chamber where members of Congress were sheltering, US Capitol Police said in a statement.
The woman was given medical assistance immediately and taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Authorities identified her as Ashli Babbitt, a 35-year-old from Huntington, Maryland.
Babbit's mother, Michelle Witthoeft told CNN on Thursday she was devastated to learn of her daughter's death.
"I loved and admired her greatly," Witthoeft said of Babbitt. "She served this country boldly and proudly."
Babbitt was an ardent Trump supporter who held strong political views, her mother said, and was "passionate enough to die for what she believed in."
Babbitt, who was previously married but separated from her husband in 2019, frequently attended pro-Trump rallies. She flew to Washington, DC, from San Diego, California, with the intent to participate in the protest this week, her mother said.
"Her political views were strong and adamant, and she voiced them whenever she could," Witthoeft said.

Former Sen. John Kerry remembered Liebengood on Twitter, saying the officer used to guard a door near his office on the Hill. “Howie always had a smile on his face, but he also showed great care for the safety of the young staff who worked behind our office doors,” Kerry wrote.
“Officer Jeffrey Smith’s service and presence will be dearly missed at the Second District,” MPD Second District Commander Duncan Bedlion told The Daily Beast in an email. “My prayers are with his family during a very difficult time.”
Smith is the second police officer to die by suicide after working at the Capitol on the day of the siege. U.S. Capitol Police Officer Howard Liebengood, a 51-year-old who had guarded the government building since 2005, took his own life on Jan. 9.
“My prayers are with the family and colleagues of Officer Jeffery Smith,” California Rep. Ted Lieu (D) wrote on Twitter Wednesday.
