Senator David Perdue Comments On Congressional Shooting

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia at the practice for a charity baseball game:

“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.”
