House Majority White shot at congressional baseball practice

St. Louis Post Dispatch said he owned a home inspection business, but the business license expired past year.

Mr Scalise, the number three House Republican, was shot on Wednesday along with several others during a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.

After the incident was reported, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), who was there when the shooting happened, told CNN "there must have been 50 to 100 shots fired". "He is grateful for the fearless actions of U.S. Capitol Police, first responders and colleagues".

Other lawmakers were stunned in the aftermath of the event, which raised questions about the security of members of Congress.

FBI Special Agent in Charge Tim Slater would not comment on if the Republican lawmakers were specifically targeted, if the shooting was domestic terrorism, or on what is the motive of the shooter. He said he did so to ensure that Mrs. Scalise would not find out about the shooting through the media.

Brooks said he saw the man only for a second, and that he was shooting from a chain link fence behind the third base position on the field where the congressional group was holding an early morning morning practice ahead of a game against Democrats this week. She said the officer had gotten out of a parked vehicle, drawn a handgun and shouted something to the gunman, who then fired. He said five people had been transported to receive medical care, including the suspect.

He told CNN the shooter looked like a "white male. middle aged. a little on the chubby side".

After receiving a call of shots fired at 7:09 a.m., officers were on the scene within three minutes, Chief Brown said. He said the shooter was "taken down".

Earlier: Police in Virginia in the U.S. have confirmed they are investigating a shooting involving multiple people at a congressional baseball practice in northern Virginia.

Brooks also told the network that he watched as "a Capitol security guy who had already been shot, who had helped take down the shooter, came limping over to us in the outfield, totally ignoring his own wounds to check on the person he was primarily responsible for - Steve Scalise being a part of the House leadership team". "I think it was not a life-threatening wound". "He started doing what you need to do to try to minimize the blood loss".

President Donald Trump is aware of the incident, according to a tweet from White House spokesman Sean Spicer.

Sen. Flake, of Arizona, said he took cover in the dugout as the gunman and law enforcement exchanged fire. He said at least one kid, Rep. Joe Barton's 10-year-old son, was at the field.

"Prior to entering surgery, the Whip was in good spirits and spoke to his wife by phone", Scalise's office said in a statement. "I just didn't want her to wake up and hear the news and not know what was going on".

Sen. Rand Paul, R-KY, said on Twitter that he was there and "shaken but unharmed". Two of the wounded were Capitol Hill police who were at the scene, witnesses said. "My thanks to them are inadequate but heartfelt".

Trump said in a tweet that Scalise "was badly injured but will fully recover", adding, "Our thoughts and prayers are with him".
