The gunman, who was killed by Capitol Police, was identified as James T. Hodgkinson, 66, of IL.

"I am shocked & praying for the safety & recovery of my friend Steve Scalise & all the others shot, including the officers", Donnelly said in another tweet.

The #RunWithAlexandria event will be held Wednesday evening at 6:3o p.m. beginning at George Washington Middle School with members of Congress and their staffs, along with Capitol Police and Alexandria City Police, who were at the scene of the shooting and quickly neutralized Hodgkinson. They received fire and returned fire, their actions being called heroic, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation says if they weren't there, that the situation would have been much worse. The shooter then shot again, I believe, at the third baseman who was running over to us. "The bullet traveled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding", the MedStar Washington Hospital Center said in a statement on Wednesday evening.

Representative Bill Flores said a colleague who was at the practice told him the gunman asked if the baseball players were democrats or republicans. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), whose 2016 presidential campaign Hodgkinson volunteered for.

There has been no immediate indication that President Donald Trump or members of Congress would propose any new legislation related to guns after the attack. The shooter shot a total of five people: Scalise, Scalise's aide, a member of Texas Rep. Roger Williams' staff and two Capitol Hill police agents. Mike Crapo. "I also commend and thank the men and women of the U.S. Capitol Police".
