U.S. Capitol Police Statement regarding Media Misidentification of Officer

February 23, 2021
Press Release

As the investigation continues into the events of January 6, 2021, it’s important to correct misinformation some in the media have reported, and that’s been shared on social media. Reports identifying Special Agent David Bailey as the officer involved in the shooting in the Speaker’s Lobby are inaccurate.  The Department will share additional information once the investigation is complete.
