through the door known as the Document Door, located on the first floor
of the East Front;
Whereas Officer Jacob Joseph Chestnut was the first United States Capitol Police

Whereas Detective John Michael Gibson also confronted the gunman and lost his
life in the ensuing shootout;
Whereas the last shot fired by Detective John Gibson--his final act as an
officer of the law--finally brought down the gunman and ended his deadly
Whereas while the gunman's intentions are not fully known, nor may ever be
known, it is clear that he would have killed more innocent people if

professionalism in their duties to keep the United States Capitol and
the Senate and House of Representatives office buildings safe for all
who enter them;

Detective John Michael Gibson of the United States Capitol Police, who
gave their lives in the line of duty on July 24, 1998, near that door.
