At least one Congressman is shot after a gunman opened fire on a Congressional baseball team practice.
Police say the gunman fired an automatic rifle, and reportedly got off as many as 50 shots Wednesday morning as the team was gathering in Alexandria, VA. Rep. Steve Scalise was shot in the hip, and is hospitalized in stable condition.
There are reports of several other injuries, but it’s unclear who the victims are just yet.
Police say they have the suspect in custody.
President Trump tweeted about the incident, calling Scalise a “true friend and patriot.”
Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, a true friend and patriot, was badly injured but will fully recover. Our thoughts and prayers are with him.
