Obama said information about the shooting was continuing to flow in.
“We do not yet have all the answers,” he said. What we do know is that such a senseless and terrible act of violence has no place in a free society.”
House Speaker John Boehner said he was “horrified” by the shooting.
“An attack on one who serves is an attack on all who serve,” he said. “Acts and threats of violence against public officials have no place in our society.”
