Ivanka Trump Calls for National Unity After Virginia Shooting

House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise on Capitol Hill in 2015

They shot the shooter.

President Trump said on Wednesday morning that the shooter died of his injuries. Gravel bounced as shots hit the ground. "This is awful. I got bloody running and jumping into the dugout". Last year, more than $500,000 was raised.

There's something to be said for public officials living in the same world as the rest of us, physically accessible to their constituents, without an armed bodyguard standing nearby.

Scalise was fielding balls on second base when he was shot, according to lawmakers present, then dragged himself into the outfield to get away from the gunman.

While police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it was too early to determine whether it was a deliberate political attack, the shooting intensified concerns among some politicians and the public about the sharp divide and bitter rhetoric in US politics.

"It does seem that we in this country spend a lot of time and concern about things outside of our boarders and threats coming into this country. This was that sound".

Doyle announced that his team would invite the Republican players to have dinner with them at the National Democratic Club on Wednesday night, so the two teams could dine together before tomorrow's game.

The Capitol Police were at the scene because of the presence of Scalise, the third-ranking Republican in Congress. They repeatedly thanked Capitol Police and suspected that had officers not been at the diamond, more could have been injured or killed.

Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent in charge Tim Slater said it was "too early to say" whether it was an act of terrorism, or whether Scalise was targeted. "That's not a fair fight".

Two lawmakers who were at the scene, Representatives Ron DeSantis and Jeff Duncan, indicated there might have been a political motive in the attack.

"And we all laid flat, and the pops got louder - so I think the shooter was coming across the baseball field towards everyone".

Rep. Roger Williams, R-Texas, said a member of his staff was among the wounded. Rep. Scalise, too, was attended to by his colleagues on the field. She thought at first it was a drill or a paintball game. "And it just went from really sort of a calm, peaceful morning to utter chaos in here". He immediately began providing medical care on the field and while the event was unfolding. She recalled no other noise until she heard a police officer command, "Get down!" "We know each other's arguments, and we know nothing's going to happen". "The fear factor was horrific".

It was over in a matter of minutes. Many have credited the U.S. Capitol Police for effectively engaging with the gunman, using their pistols against his rifle - a decidedly uneven matchup across a wide open space.

Scalise was shot in the hip; his office says the lawmaker is now in stable condition and is undergoing surgery at MedStar Washington Hospital Center. Mika's family said the lobbyist was shot multiple times and was in critical condition and in surgery.

Authorities say two members of the Capitol Police force, Special Agent Crystal Griner and Special Agent David Bailey, returned fire with the gunman before local police arrived shortly after 7 a.m.

He had a history of arrests, including for resisting police and drunken driving, and of speaking out against Republicans.

He also reportedly volunteered for the presidential campaign of Democratic Sen. A mobile backstop curved behind home plate, near metal bats.
