SALEM, Ore. -- Gov. Kate Brown has ordered flags at Oregon public institutions to be flown at half-staff until sunset Wednesday to honor the two fallen U.S. Capitol police officers Brian D. Sicknick and Howard Liebengood. 

"Violence answers nothing, solves nothing, and offers nothing," Brown said. "Last week, we saw attacks on our democracy, the Constitution, and the American people. This is not who we are. Dan and I send our condolences to the families of Officer Sicknick and Officer Liebengood as they mourn and grieve. We remember their dedication and determination, their service, and sacrifice."

Sicknick died of injuries he sustained when demonstrators stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. Liebengood responded to that riot, but died while off-duty and the cause is unclear.

Federal buildings are also flying flags at half-staff until sunset on Wednesday.
