Who are the heroes of the attack on GOP lawmakers?

GOP congressman, Capitol police, others wounded in shooting

Three others, including a Capitol police officer, were also shot.

President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, paid a visit Wednesday to one of the Capitol Police officers wounded in Wednesday's attack on a congressional baseball practice.

Griner and Special Agent David Bailey engaged the gunman and shot him dead.

Republican lawmakers who survived the rampage at an early morning baseball practice say things would have been much worse if a pair of Capitol Hill police hadn't been there - and credited them for saving lives. Both also said he adored his mother, whom he helped care for after a recent surgery, according to Adams Jones.

"Many lives would have been lost if not for the heroic actions of the two Capitol Police officers who took down the gunman". Scalise was the only member of Congress on field who was shot and also remains in the hospital.

Kim Dine, a former chief of the Capitol Police, said Griner followed her training and that he was deeply proud of her efforts. IL resident James Hodgkinson, 66, opened fire from behind the fence along the third base line.

A Destatis spokesperson added: "The link to Brexit seems clear". 'This is the highest ever level of registered British citizens'. More Britons than ever before became German citizens a year ago after Britain's vote to leave Europe.

Democratic Rep. Cedric Richmond, a close friend of Scalise's and fellow member from Louisiana, said he told Speaker Paul D. Ryan recently that he had concerns about the safety of members "and the thought that violence would come to our family next".

"I've been in regular contact with some of Matt's family members and look forward to visiting Matt".

"I know as sure as I'm standing here right now that there's no way we would have lived through that", Rep. Mike Bishop, R-Michigan, told "CBS Evening News" anchor Scott Pelley. "Fortunately, he's a good guy", Brooks said of a Capitol Police officer. Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, sought safety.

"There will be those who will talk about what's wrong with America but in this case, Officers Griner and Bailey, we saw what's right with America", the Texas Republican said.

"These guys were real heroes and I think without them everybody probably would have been killed", Paul said.
