It is 18 years to the day since a bank robbery suspect killed a federal marshal and a building security guard at the Dirksen Federal Building.

A somber service was held at the courthouse Tuesday to remember the victims.

On July 20, 1992, Jeffery Erickson slipped free of his handcuffs and wrestled a gun from a federal marshal. He shot and killed Deputy Marshal Roy Frakes and security guard Harry Belluomini.

Erickson then killed himself.
