Congressman Steve Scalise, GOP Whip shot, at least five others injured
A gunman opened fired from behind the dugout during a congressional baseball practice. The shooting occurred in Alexandria, VA on the 400 block of E. Monroe Street.
At least five people were shot, including Scalise who was shot in the hip. The shooter is reported as being a white male and is believed to be in custody.
Other reported over 50 shots were fired just moments ago.
The shooting appears to be a targeting assault on GOP members of congress. Rep. Scalise’s injuries, and those of the other staffers, appear to be non-life threatening and a full recovery expected. Sean Spicer reported that President Trump and Vice-President Pence are monitoring the situation carefully.
