Via the AJC…Georgia congressman, Barry Loudermilk and his Chief of Staff Rob Adkerson, are safe after ball field shooting in D.C. suburb.
Horrific reports of “a number of congressmen and congressional staffers lying on the ground, and at least one of them was wounded.”
These congressmen and staffers are good, kind-hearted, people. Many of the staffers in DC are coming up straight out of college, taking low paying salaries to try and make the world a better place.
They didn’t sign up for this. Whoever did this was a piece of trash.
UPDATE: Statement from Senator David Perdue:
It is not said enough. Thank you to our U.S. Capitol Police officers who work around the clock to protect and serve our country. When tragedy broke out today, two Capitol Police officers engaged and took down the shooter. One of the police officers — after being shot — stopped the shooter and helped others before even attending to his own wounds. This is true heroism. Steve Scalise is a personal friend, and Bonnie and I join the country in praying for him, our Capitol Police officers, and all of the individuals who were injured in this horrific shooting.
