The two slain officers, Jacob Chestnut and John Gibson, were well known to people at the Capitol, and those people are determined that the officers' bravery be remembered in some special way.
There will be no business at the Capitol Monday. The members of the House and Senate will go to the floor of the House and Senate to give tributes to the officers.
Tuesday, their coffins will be placed beneath the Rotunda, where the public can pass by and pay their respects. Only 25 other people have had their coffins viewed in the Rotunda in the history of the United States. Abraham Lincoln was the first to be honored in this way. The only other law-enforcement official was J. Edgar Hoover.
At 3:00 p.m. Tuesday, a memorial service will be held for the officers, families, members of the Capitol Hill police, and members of Congress. The vice president and president will attend, CBS News has learned. Flags, which are at half-staff, will remain so, at least through Tuesday.
