Shooting in Virginia: What We know

Shooting in Virginia: What We know

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

Brooks said even after one of the officers was wounded, he limped toward the outfield in an attempt to help Scalise. Speaking at the White House, Mr Trump said Mr Scalise was "badly injured" but in stable condition and would recover.

"The only chance we had was the Capitol Police", Paul said.

Trump praised the Capitol Police officers who fired back at the shooter for their "heroism" and called on Americans to "take a moment today to cherish those you love and always remember those who serve and keep us safe".

Representative Mo Brooks told CNN that "at least five" persons were injured in the shooting, including two law enforcement officers and a congressional aide.

DeSantis said as he walked to his auto, a man asked him if it was Republicans or Democrats practising.

"But for their heroism there's no question that there would have been much more carnage, no doubt about it, because no one else there was armed and this shooter was not only active but he was really unloading so many shots", said the congressman, still in his baseball clothes at Capitol Hill hours later.

Trump says he and the vice president are "deeply saddened" by the news of the shooting.

The company said in a statement that "the board unanimously voted to adopt all the recommendations of the Holder Report". Top business executive Emil Michael , a chief confidant of Mr Kalanick, was also to part ways with the company.

The shooting marks the first time a sitting member of Congress has been shot since Rep. He is receiving medical attention.

Rep. Pat Meehan, R-Pennsylvania, is a pitcher on the team but was not there Wednesday because he pitched the day before. Rand Paul (R-KY) said. Officials said several other people, including members of Scalise's security team, were also wounded. "We're all thinking of all of them". These were our brothers and sisters who ran into danger and saved countless lives. Barton's son was also at the game.

Republican members of Congress described feelings of fear and running for cover in the wake of a gunman opening fire on them during their practice for the Congressional Baseball Game.

As of now, the gunman, who reportedly asked "are these the Republicans or the Democrats" practicing on the field, appears to be the only fatality from the shooting.
