U.S. Capitol Police officers, who responded to an incident that ended in gunfire near the building Thursday, are working but will not be compensated until the federal government is re-opened because they are deemed “essential” employees, accoring to ABC News.

“They will get paid eventually, but no paychecks until the government opens back up,” a top Senate aide told ABC News.
