San Francisco police said the building was secure but offered no immediate information on victims.

"With reports indicating that Wednesday morning's shooter is from my district, this is a tragedy that certainly hits close to home.

Trump announced the gunman's death and called Scalise, a 51-year-old Louisiana congressman, a good friend. Congressional and law enforcement sources described it as a "deliberate attack".

"The only thing I was concerned about was that it was such a high-powered gun, and that somebody could possibly get hurt".

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-Louisana, was shot in the hip with a rifle, and two members of the Capitol Hill police force, a congressional staffer and a lobbyist also were injured. He later died from his wounds. His neighbor wasn't a stranger to local law enforcement though.

Hodgkinson engaged in a gunbattle with the Capitol Police before he was shot, dying later of his injuries.
