The man who killed the husband of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wanted to target Nancy. Local media reports that when he attacked Paul Pelosi, he repeatedly shouted where is Nancy?'' Also, he once told Paul to wait for Nancy by tying him with ropes. Let us tell you that the attacker had hit Paul Pelosi on the head with a hammer. Paul is seriously injured.
On the other hand, US President Joe Biden has called the attack disgusting. Nancy Pelosi's spokesman, Drew Hamill, said Paul Pelosi was attacked by "an assailant at the house. He came looking for the speaker, so Nancy is in danger." On the other hand, 82-year-old Paul Pelosi suffered severe injuries to his head, arms, and legs. He has had a successful surgery and is out of danger.
According to San Francisco police, the attacker entered Pelosi's home at 2:30 p.m. San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott told reporters: "The attacker has been identified as 42-year-old David Deppe. Deppe will be charged with several serious charges, including an attempt to murder, assault with a deadly weapon, and burglary." However, the police refused to divulge further details about the accused.
The police have also failed to tell the attack's motive. US media, citing family sources, said the intruder told Paul Pelosi that he would tie her up and wait for Nancy to come home. However, during this, Paul managed to call the police, and thus the accused was caught. Local media reported that the intruder was shouting, "Where is Nancy?"
