Politicians take to Twitter to condemn Alexandria shooting

Politicians take to Twitter to condemn Alexandria shooting”

Brooks said two law enforcement officers were believed to be among the others shot. "Had they not been there, it would've been a massacre..." "While I was not at the practice this morning, I want to thank and commend the first responders and the Capitol Police officers on site who helped bring an end to this disgusting act".

"He shot at Steve Scalise, our second baseman". News identified that suspect as 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois.

Two police officers engaged and returned gunfire while on the scene. Brown did not identify the injured people.

"We have a closer relationship because we practice baseball at 6:30 in the morning", Costello said.

Scalise was shot in Alexandria, Virginia, where members of Congress were attending a practice for the GOP congressional baseball team. The game was scheduled to be played Thursday.

A man receives medical attention from first responders on the scene following a shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, USA, 14 June 2017.

In an August 2012 letter, Hodgkinson appeared to be responding to another letter writer, whom Hodgkinson said reminded him of Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly - who "speak their lies and hatred and misdirection to anyone who will listen".

Correction: An earlier version of this story, citing federal authorities, incorrectly said the gunman wounded five people before he was shot.

"We are very fortunate".

"An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us", Ryan said.

Scalise was shot in the hip along with two Capitol Hill police officers and the gunman.

Video obtained by the New York Post shows moments from the shooting that left five people, including Rep. Steve Scalise, wounded.

"I felt like I was back in Iraq but without my weapons", Wenstrup said on Fox & Friends. However, Flake said that "50 would be an understatement". Scalise remained coherent throughout.

According to multiple reports, a gunman opened fire at the baseball field.

Trump says he is "deeply saddened" by news of a shooting "tragedy" at a congressional baseball game.

"[Scalise] is grateful for the fearless actions of U.S. Capitol Police, first responders, and colleagues", the statement reads. A staff member for Texas Congressman Roger Williams was injured, along with possibly another congressional aide. Rep. Mo Brooks, who had been at the baseball practice with Scalise, confirmed that the majority leader had been shot in the hip, and told CNN on Wednesday morning that the suspected shooter had been trying to take out the Capitol security detail before "getting to the rest of us".
