Shackled to a hospital bed and under heavy police guard, the suspect in the shooting deaths of two Capitol police officers met with his family for the first time since the attack.

Russell E. Weston Jr., who allegedly barged through a metal detector and into a busy Capitol hallway July 24, saw his family for two hours Tuesday, a hospital spokeswoman said."They were just very happy to get to finally see their son," defense lawyer Barry Boss said.
