Republican Minority Whip Steve Scalise issued a statement shortly after he learned a Capitol Police officer was killed on Friday.
U.S. Capitol Police said one officer died and another was injured after someone drove a vehicle past an access point on Friday afternoon at the Capitol, ramming the two officers. The driver got out of the vehicle while appearing to brandish a knife before being shot by authorities.
Scalise issued a statement on Twitter saying he was heartbroken and also asked others to pray for the family of the officer. Scalise credits Capitol Police for saving his life after he was shot at a Congressional baseball game practice in 2017.
