"Scalise's security detail and Capitol Hill police immediately began to return fire and Alexandria police also immediately came and began to return fire", he said.

Griner and Bailey were also injured in the shooting, as was Williams, one of his staffers and a former staffer who remains hospitalized.

"It is clear to me, based on various eyewitness accounts, that without these two heroes, Agent Bailey and Agent Griner, many lives would have been lost", said Ryan, who got a standing ovation from the House chamber.

Brooks said he took off his belt and he and another congressman applied a tourniquet to try to slow the bleeding.

Identifying the officers as David Bailey and Crystal Griner, House Speaker Paul Ryan and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi offered their thanks to the pair and the entire Capitol Police.

Bailey loves traveling, going to the gym and putting Heinz ketchup on everything, Adams Jones and fraternity brother Leonardo Williams said.
