Congressman Steve Scalise Shot at Alexandria, Virginia Park

Congressman Steve Scalise Shot at Alexandria, Virginia Park”

Scalise, a Republican from Louisiana, had surgery and is in stable condition at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, his office said.

Duncan said that he believes the Republicans were targeted due to their political affiliation. U.S. Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa told reporters that his injured officers were in good condition and had not suffered life-threatening injuries. "We ask that you keep the Whip and others harmed in this incident in your thoughts and prayers".

The FBI said Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Ill., died after he was shot by police. His interview with ABC News is below.

Crime scene investigators search for evidence at the scene of a multiple shooting in Alexandria, Va., Wednesday, June 14, 2017, involving a House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of La., and others, during a congressional baseball practice.

"The Democrats have let you down big-league", he told an audience at a Milwaukee airport on a trip that was part of what the White House planned as "workforce development week".

Texas Representatives Roger Williams, Joe Barton, Kevin Brady and Mike Conaway were there when shots rang out. Barth is receiving medical attention and is expected to make a full recovery, Williams said.

"I'm at the Democratic baseball practice lamenting the bad news about this shooting", Ruiz said in a Facebook post just before 6 a.m., Pacific time.

A lobbyist for Arkansas-based Tyson Foods was among the victims, though there was no immediate word on his condition.

"We are strongest when we are unified and when we work together for the common good", the president said in an address to the country from the Diplomatic Room of the White House. We all learned more about motivation and the rest of that.

Mika previously worked for Rep. Tim Walberg, R-Mich., and remains "a close friend" of his, according to a statement from Walberg.

Scalise, No. 3 in the House of Representatives Republican leadership, was shot in the hip.

"I spoke with special agent Bailey and special agent Greiner this morning". It was not immediately clear whether it would go on as scheduled.

"I believe that there's such a hatefulness in what we see in American politics and policy discussions right now".

Two Capitol Police officers showed "incredible bravery", Brooks said, describing how they used their pistols to engage in a gunbattle with a man armed with a rifle, from a distance of 90 to 120 feet.

"One of our security detail was shooting back, but it was our pistol versus the shooter's rifle", Brooks said.

Flake estimated that more than 50 shots were fired.

The shooting took place at a practice for the GOP congressional baseball team.

"Tomorrow we'll go out on the field", Pelosi said. "The incident lasted for approximately 10 minutes".

"We were doing batting practice", said Flake. "At that point, people were dropping". Ryan Costello, of Chester County, and Pat Meehan, of Delaware County, who are on the congressional baseball team, did not attend the practice on Wednesday.

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

"He shot at Steve Scalise, our second baseman. I'm sad that he was shot but he actually saved everybody's life by being there". I wanted to get to him, but as long as there was gunfire overhead I couldn't.

"It was like being in Iraq again", Wenstrup said.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, said on the Senate floor that the gunman apparently volunteered on Sanders' presidential campaign.

A total of five people were transported for treatment. "Without them there, this would have been a massacre".

"Both teams have been practicing for weeks in preparation for the game at Nationals Park and we fully support the decision to play the game". Chuck Fleischmann, R-Tenn.
