House Republicans and Democrats are looking into the possibility of a bipartisan effort to address gun violence following a week of bloodshed across the country that saw five police officers shot dead and two African Americans killed by cops, CNN reports.

"Whatever we end up doing is going to be bipartisan," said House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican.

"I'm not pre-determining what it is. I just think what has gone on in the nation this week — this is a time, not only to pause for the prayers, but it's a time this country should unite and solve the problems out there, make sure justice is done."

McCarthy plans to speak with his counterpart, No. 2 House Democrat Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland on Saturday after both speak with their fellow lawmakers.

CNN said that separately, House Speaker Paul Ryan chatted with Louisiana Democratic Rep. Cedric Richmond, who district encompasses part of Baton Rouge, where Alton Sterling was shot dead.
