Pelsoi said she also prays that Donald Trump's presidency is successful and that his family remains safe. "An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us", Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House of Representatives, said on the floor of the House hours after the incident. To my colleagues, you will hear something you've never heard me say before: I identify myself with the remarks of the speaker. "For them to be so sanctimonious is something that I really am nearly sad for myself".

Family members of Matt Mika say the MI native was shot multiple times in his chest and arm, and he remains in the intensive care unit in critical condition at George Washington University Hospital.

Trump praised the "heroic actions" of the Capital Police at the scene.

A congressional aide, a lobbyist and one police officer were also shot before police killed the gunman. The shooter - identified as James T. Hodgkinson, 66, a Bernie Sanders volunteer from IL - later died from his injuries.

Democrats and Republicans from Wisconsin watched the news in horror.
