Statement from the office of Sen. Chuck Grassley on the Capitol Hill shooting incident:
Senator Grassley was at the National World War II Memorial with veterans from the Quad Cities visiting through the Honor Flight program when the Capitol Hill shooting incident occurred. He stayed at the memorial, as scheduled, with the Senate office buildings on lockdown, and his staff “sheltered in place” in the Senate office buildings, as police directed. No Iowans were visiting his office in the Hart building at the time of the lockdown. Senator Grassley and his staff have high regard for the police officers who protect members, staff and visitors around the clock.
