Manchin Statement on Shooting of Congressional Member, Aides and Capitol Police

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) released the following statement on shooting of Congressman Steve Scalise, aides and Capitol Police officers.

“Gayle and I are sending our thoughts and prayers to Congressman Scalise, aides and Capitol Police officers who were injured today and their families. It’s unimaginable that someone would target my colleagues as they were practicing for a charitable baseball game that creates bipartisanship and comradery. We must also never take our Capitol Police for granted. They put their lives on the line every day to protect us and we must always remember to thank them for their service and sacrifice in the line of duty. We wish everyone injured a speedy recovery.”
