The Capitol Police initially responded to the wrong location during last month's shooting at a Republican congressional baseball practice, going to Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's house instead of the Virginia field.
Members of the Capitol Police Containment and Emergency Response Team were directed to go to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's house in Georgetown rather than the Alexandria, Va., baseball field where House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and others were shot.
Bloomberg reported the Capitol Police opened an internal investigation into why officers were directed to Pelosi's house. It is unclear how much time the police wasted by responding to the wrong location, and it's not clear whether the officers actually made it to Pelosi's house or were redirected en route, the report stated.
A person familiar with the incident told Bloomberg the Capitol Police believe the delayed response had no "operational impact."
Local Alexandria police officers also responded to the shooting site. Two Capitol Police officers who were a part of Scalise's security detail were already at the baseball field and were the first to return fire at the gunman.
Investigators are still reviewing the how the mix-up occurred, but one possibility they are considering is whether a transponder code was used for the wrong congressional leader.
Scalise, R-La., was discharged from the hospital last week and was moved to an inpatient rehabilitation facility after undergoing several surgeries related to his wounds.
