President Trump says shooting assailant died of injuries

TMZ reports that this is James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville IL

The fifth person wounded in the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday morning was a former congressional aide, who now works for Tysons Food.

Trumped thanked emergency crews who responded to the scene, including two police officers who were wounded in the incident. "He was going after elected officials".

President Donald Trump said in remarks from the White House late Wednesday morning that the suspect had died of his wounds.

It happened near Alexandria, VA.

"Whether it is on the baseball field, the House floor or in life, he is always encouraging, motivating and supporting his members and teammates", Marshall said.

Sen. Flake also said he has already reached out to give well wishes to the Scalise family. "He had a lot of ammo".

Law enforcement authorities in the United States have said that the shooting appears to be a "deliberate attack", with the shooter being arrested a short time after the incident.

A police officer was hit by the gunman after he got out of a parked vehicle and drew a handgun, according to Filous.

Once the gunman was down, Flake ran to Scalise and tended to him.

Palmer said he and Kelly then took cover.

They were in good spirits despite the heat and humidity as they prepared for the congressional baseball match that pits Republicans against Democrats.

Mr Scalise dragged himself off the infield leaving a trail of blood as colleagues rushed to his assistance.

Rep. Steve Scalise and others were shot during a practice for the Congressional Baseball Game on Wednesday morning. Williams did not say what condition the staffer was in.

Representative Jeff Duncan spoke with 7News Daybreak and said he left the practice for a meeting, and believes he may have spoken to the shooter.

"Please pray for those who were injured".

Associated Press reporters Chad Day, Mary Clare Jalonick, Ken Thomas, Vivian Salama and Sarah Brumfield contributed to this report.

Two law enforcement sources told CNN the shooter, who is in police custody, has been taken to a hospital. He was the first to tell the media that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was hit by gunfire. Brooks said that Scalise, 51, was down on the ground with what Brooks described as "a hip wound".

"At the same time, I hear Steve Scalise over near second base scream".

"Those guys were sitting ducks out there against a guy with a weapon and they knew they could not carry [a weapon]".

Afterward, Brooks said he saw Sen.
