Boehner: Security officer in FRC shooting ‘is a hero’

The security guard was shot when a man attempted to enter the building in Washington, D.C.'s busy Chinatown neighborhood Wednesday morning.

"As far as I'm concerned, the security officer here is a hero," D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier told the Washington Examiner. "The [shooter] never made it past him."

Boehner joins several other Republicans in the House who had already sent thoughts and prayers to the FRC following the incident.
