Congressman Rodney Davis is offering thanks and appreciation to the U.S. Capitol police for their fast response to the crisis on Capitol Hill Thursday.
Police wound up fatally shooting a woman that they say tried to ram a barricade at the White House and then sped toward the Capitol.
Davis was in his House office, some distance away from the incident, and was not in danger.
He says the Capitol police are under-appreciated in a difficult job. Those officers are currently going without pay as a result of the government shutdown.
