WASHINGTON, DC (AP) - White House spokesman Jay Carney said President Barack Obama, who was traveling in Iowa Wednesday, was informed of the shooting shortly after 1 p.m.
Carney said, "The president expressed his concern for the individual injured in the shooting and his strong belief that this type of violence has no place in our society."
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said in a statement that he was appalled. "There is no place for such violence in our society," he said. "My prayers go out to the wounded security guard and his family, as well as all the people at the Family Research Council whose sense of security has been shattered by today's horrific events."
