Bailey was treated and released the same day.

Matt Mika, who works as a lobbyist for Tyson Foods, was also injured and is in critical condition, his family said in a statement.

Speaker Ryan said he spoke with both special agents Wednesday morning.

"But for their heroism there's no question that there would have been much more carnage, no doubt about it, because no one else there was armed and this shooter was not only active but he was really unloading so many shots", said the congressman, still in his baseball clothes at Capitol Hill hours later.

'She is unbelievable, and she's a hero, ' retired Capitol Police Chief Kim Dine tells CBS News. "What a great job they did", Trump said. One of the police officers-after being shot-stopped the shooter and helped others before even attending to his own wounds.

The Capitol Police officers present at the fateful GOP congressional baseball practice this week are being hailed as heroes for killing the left-wing sociopath who sprayed bullets onto the field.

Rep. Roger Williams, a Texas Republican who witnessed the shooting and whose legislative aide was shot, said he and his family will be "forever grateful" that the officers prevented what could have easily been 25 deaths or more.

There will be an open-world element to the game as well in which players will be free to sling their way across the city. An upcoming update to Minecraft will introduce online multiplayer across PC, Xbox, mobile and Nintendo , but not PS4.


"There will be those who talk about what's wrong with America".

"God puts us in places for a reason", Bailey said when asked about the luck of he and his fellow officers being there. "We saw two people risk their lives to save the lives of others". He later died from his injuries, President Donald Trump said.

"Many lives would have been lost if not for the heroic actions of the two Capitol Police officers who took down the gunman".

The bravery and quick response of U.S. Capitol Police prevented Wednesday's shooting at a Northern Virginia baseball field from becoming a "massacre", congressmen at the center of the terrifying ordeal said.
