Although U.S. Capitol Police are warning staffers and members of Congress on the Hill to be cautious after Saturday's shooting in southern Arizona, one legislator urges security should be measured.
A Capitol Police spokesperson says they're not doing anything differently as a result of the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and several others Saturday in Tucson. But they are advising members of Congress to take "reasonable and prudent precautions" for their own safety.
D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton says tightening security is not the appropriate response to this.
"If you want to be a member of the House of Representatives, you have to be out among your people the way Gabby Giffords was," she says. "We all have to regard what happened in her district as very unusual and not something that is not likely to happen to the rest of us."
Investigators with the U.S. Capitol Police say they are working with federal law enforcement and local law enforcement in Arizona on this case.
