House Speaker Ryan identifies injured Capitol Police officers

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) addressed the House on Wednesday after the shooting at the Republican congressional baseball practice.

“We are united in our shock, united in our anguish. An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us,” Ryan said.

He named the victims of the shootings, including two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner.

He said he spoke to both officers this morning.

“One was being treated and one was about to go into surgery. I expressed our profound gratitude to them,” adding that more lives would have been lost without their presence.

The other victims injured in the shooting have been identified as Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.); Zach Barth, a staffer for Rep. Roger Williams (R-Tex.); and Matt Mika, a lobbyist for Tysons Foods.
