Amid media reports that a Capitol Police officer had succumbed to injuries after Wednesday's violent surge, Business Insider reports that Capitol Police are denying the story. A statement issued Thursday said that "although some officers were injured and hospitalized yesterday, no USCP officers" have died, said a tweet by a Bloomberg reporter.

Business Insider said that union chair Gus Papathanasiou insisted the officer had not died, but rather was on life support until his family could arrive.

The Daily Mail said the officer was reported to have suffered a stroke during the Capitol breach, though there was a conflicting report he'd been struck with a fire extinguisher. 

Reports say more than 50 officers were hurt in clashes, and the chief of the Capitol Police has submitted a resignation amid criticisms about the department's response to the siege. a secure location.
