Officers immediately tackled DePape, disarmed him, and arrested him while calling for backup and providing medical aid. Investigating the attack's motive.
Two sources familiar with the investigation told The Associated Press that Paul Pelosi was targeted, severely beaten with a hammer, and suffered blunt force injuries to his head and body. Sources said Pelosi is being treated for bruising and severe swelling.
The U.S. Capitol Police said it is "assisting the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the San Francisco Police with a joint investigation into a break-in at the California home of the Speaker of the House of Representatives."
