WASHINGTON – Police officers who responded to the Jan. 6 siege at the Capitol have shared harrowing details of their experiences.

Among those who spoke to the media are Officers Michael Fanone, Christina Laury and Daniel Hodges, who were attacked in separate incidents.

"Some guys started getting a hold of my gun and they were screaming out, 'Kill him with his own gun,'" Fanone told CNN.

"There's a guy ripping my mask off, he was able to rip away the baton and beat me with it," Hodges, who was captured being crushed by the mob in a video that went viral, told CNN. "He was practically foaming at the mouth so just, these people were true believers in the worst way."
