    2017.06.14 - House Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), others, shot at Alexandria baseball field

    Police say multiple people were shot Wednesday morning in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia.

    The shooting happened in the 400 block of E. Monroe Street. It's not clear how many people were injured, but police are calling the incident a "multiple shooting."

    An apparent witness wrote on Twitter that someone opened fire on a baseball field where congressional Republicans were practicing and he heard many shots.

    “We had three members of Congress take shelter in our apartment,” he said on a live stream, as sounds of emergency vehicles could be heard. “The three weren’t shot.”

    Man... it'd be interesting to hear if they are on the radio about it.

    A reporter from Fox News also tweeted that staffers were hit.

    "Right now, we're secure," Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) told CNN Wednesday morning. Brooks said "at least five" people were shot, his voice breaking. Brooks said Scalise was shot in the hip and was "dragging his body" to get away from the shooter. Brooks also said he helped two shooting victims, applying a tourniquet to one unidentified staffer.

    Rep. DeSantis: Man Asked Whether Republicans or Dems Were on Field Before Scalise Shooting

    DeSantis said by phone that he and another congressman were leaving when a man asked them whether Republican or Democrat members of Congress were on the field.

    "I was kind of a little odd," he said.

    DeSantis said the man wasn't carrying anything at that time, but then a few minutes later, the shooting started.

    Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said he was leaving the practice when a man approached him and asked if Republicans or Democrats were on the field.

    He said the encounter was "very, very strange."

    Scalise was one of several people shot at the practice in Alexandria, Va., where it is believed a single gunman fired as many as 50 shots at lawmakers and aides who scrambled for cover.*

    Brooks said the gunman had a semi-automatic rifle, while Paul described it as sounding like an AR-15.


    Brooks said the gunman stood behind a dugout.

    "He appeared to be a white male," Brooks said, adding that he only saw the gunman for a fraction of a second.

    Horrible. Prayers all recover quickly. Hope this wasn't an attack based on political ideology although it seems more than likely it is.

    A suspect, who received at least one gunshot, is in custody. Bishop said the man didn’t speak a word.

    “He stood there silently. None of us saw him walk up,” he said. “One of our coaches had his son, his 11-year-old son — I have an 11-year-old son, too, who’s supposed to be here — and I am just, I can’t even tell you, I don’t know. Fortunately everybody’s OK. It’s just traumatic.”

    "The practice was for a bipartisan baseball game scheduled for Thursday. "According to a source, when Democratic members of Congress practicing at a different ballfield miles away heard of the shooting, they immediately stopped and said a prayer together, CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton reports."
