We Support Congressional Baseball Game

And Steve Scalise went down - and dragged himself off of the infield into the outfield, about 10 or 15 yards, and was laying motionless out there.

Police gunned down the shooter, 66-year-old James Hodgkinson, who also wounded a Hill staffer and two Capitol police officers. Louisiana Senate President John Alario said.

"I told the sheriff, 'I don't know what's the matter with that guy, but he can't be shooting like that, '" he said. A public event that had been scheduled for President Trump at the Labor Department this afternoon was canceled. "Their sacrifice makes democracy possible".

The officers were part of the team that protects high-ranking members of Congress. Scalise is third in line in the leadership of the House. The popular and gregarious lawmaker is known for his love of baseball and handed out commemorative bats when he secured the job of House whip several years ago.

Congressman Mo Brooks of SC says the shooter, James Hodgkinson, carried a rifle and sprayed bullets across the baseball diamond.

"Many people likely would have died this morning if not for the bravery of the Capitol Police", Paul said. The man calmly asked which party's lawmakers were practicing and Duncan told him they were the Republicans.

Hodgkinson has been in the area since March, living out of his van, said Washington FBI Special Agent In Charge Tim Slater. Jeff Flake of Arizona, who was at the practice.

In his successful 2014 bid to become majority whip of the U.S. House of Representatives, Rep... Virginia's Democratic governor, Terry McAuliffe, urged gun control measures. "We had to climb a couple more fences at that point to get out", said Sen.

A US congressman and two Capitol Police officers were wounded Wednesday after a man described as a left-wing advocate started shooting at a Republican charity team baseball practice in suburban Washington, D.C., authorities said.

As of right now, the congressional baseball game is still on for Thursday. Alexandria Chief Michael Brown said his officers arrived three minutes after the first emergency call came in at 7:09 a.m. ET, and also joined the gunfight.

"Please keep @SteveScalise and his family, as well as USCP (United States Capitol Police) in your prayers".

Steve Scalise, the No. 3 Republican in the House of Representatives, had been shot in the hip and fell to the ground.

"Please pray for Steve and all those injured", he wrote in the tweet.

Capitol Police officers were providing security at the practice and quickly returned fire when the shooting began, Verderosa said. They shot the shooter.

In a show of bipartisanship, Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan said on the floor of the House, "An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us".

The whining of Nathan's dog and the sound of his own m underscore the almost 40 shots fired between attacker James Hodgkinson and police.

Members of media and bloggers spreading misinformation and sensationalism have contributed to the problem, he says, apologizing for anything he's done to contribute to the current political climate. But I didn't take a picture of him and I heard somebody yell 'Get in the dugout!' And, the gunfire rang out.

Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent in charge Tim Slater said it was "too early to say" whether it was an act of terrorism, or whether Scalise was targeted. The other victims have been identified as Zachary Barth - he's a staffer for Texas Congressman Roger Williams - and Matt Mika, a government relations director at Tyson Foods.

Scalise was in critical condition after surgery, according to So Young Pak, spokeswoman for MedStar Washington Hospital Center. "I saw the shooter clearly with his rifle, aimed and shooting around one corner of a building", he said in a video statement. Nancy Pelosi, a fierce rival of the GOP, expressed her sympathies toward Scalise and the four other victims.

It's one of those rare instances when divisive rhetoric is set aside, and we can come together - not just as teams, but as a community. "And it just went from really sort of a calm, peaceful morning to utter chaos in here".

BENNETT: Once the gunman was down, Congressman Brooks says he and another lawmaker, Ohio's Brad Wenstrup, who's a doctor, administered first aid to the wounded using their belts as tourniquets.

"I've been saying, 'What is it going to take for this to get some visibility, '" says Charlie Kirk, a young conservative activist.

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