Shooting in Virginia: What we know

The two wounded officers are in good condition and expected to make a rapid recovery, according to Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa. A congressional aide said Scalise was in stable condition at George Washington University Hospital.

Trump, a Republican, said in a statement that he and Vice President Mike Pence were monitoring developments closely.

President Trump said on Twitter that Scalise "was badly injured but will fully recover".

Brooks, who was at the practice, said the gunman was holding what he described as a semi-automatic rifle in the area behind third base, and that Scalise had been near second base.

He told CNN the shooter looked like a "white male. middle aged. a little on the chubby side".

As Ryan left and after Capitol Police briefly told members about the shooting, the gym was quickly quiet and members quickly packed up their belongings to also head to their offices, the lawmakers said. Rand Paul, R-Ky., Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, and Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., were also at the practice.

About 25 GOP members of Congress were practicing for a game against their Democratic colleagues scheduled for Thursday.

The suspect has been identified as James T. Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old IL man. President Donald Trump, in his address at 11:30 a.m., announced Hodgkinson had died from his injuries. He said he grabbed Scalise's phone to call his wife.

"I felt like I was back in Iraq but without my weapons", Wenstrup, a veteran and former surgeon, said on "Fox & Friends". The senator said he was "sickened" by the shooting and condemned the violence.

Rep. Steve Scalise, the majority whip, was one of the individuals shot. Paul told the network that Capitol Police officers saved many lives. "Bullets were flying. He had a lot of ammo", he said of the gunman.

The post Trump "deeply saddened" by shooting at congressional baseball practice appeared first on Vanguard News.

Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., tweeted that a "shooter attacked a GOP baseball practice".

Asked whether he thought it was a random shooting, Brooks told CNN: "It sure as heck wasn't an accident". Local law enforcement didn't receive a specific threat or direction from federal agencies to heighten security, but Goligtley said it was common for increased security following major national events.

"It's pretty well known in the neighborhood who those folks are on the baseball field", Brooks said. Gabby Giffords of Arizona was shot in the head and grievously injured while meeting with constituents at a supermarket parking lot in 2011. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the members of Congress, their staffs, Capitol Police, first responders, and all others affected", Trump said in a statement.

Mr Brooks said congressmen Chuck Fleischmann, of Tennessee, Ron DeSantis, of Florida, and Jeff Duncan, of SC, were among 15-25 lawmakers at the game.
