House Homeland Security Committee member Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa., arrives on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2015, for a joint hearing of the Senate-House Homeland Security subcommittees on the Secret Service.

(Harrisburg) -- A congressman who represents part of the midstate is postponing his in-person town hall that was set for Saturday.

US Representative Scott Perry says he made the decision after extensive conversations with law enforcement following Wednesday's attack on GOP congressmen playing baseball.

RSVPs for the town hall at Cumberland Valley High School in Mechanicsburg had filled quickly earlier this week.

Perry represents parts of Cumberland, Dauphin and York counties.

There's no word on a new date, though a call with reporters is scheduled for this morning.
