Bailey, 32, has been with the Capitol Police since April 2008. He previously served with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Originally from Rio de Janeiro, Bailey went to high school in Maryland and graduated from North Carolina Central University in 2007.
U.S. Capitol Police Chief Matthew R. Verderosa said Bailey was not shot but suffered a minor injury during the shooting. He was later released from the hospital.
In tweets, former House Majority leader Eric Cantor praised Bailey and Capitol Police Special Agent Crystal Griner, who also had been assigned to his security detail.
Sen. Jeff Flake, an Arizona Republican who was at the scene of the shooting, also tweeted about the officers on Tuesday afternoon.
“Just met with Capitol Police officers Crystal Griner and David Bailey at the hospital. Thanked them for saving my life,” Flake said.
