This morning at a practice for the 2017 Congressional Baseball Game, a gunman opened fire and five were injured in the shooting. Representative Steve Scalise was one of the aides shot by the gunman, who was taken into custody, according to ABC News. In response to the shooting, President Donald Trump tweeted the following message, “Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, a true friend and patriot, was badly injured but will fully recover. Our thoughts and prayers are with him.” Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, who was present during the shooting, told USA Today about his experience, saying that:

I heard a bang, and I thought it sounded like a gun. I never saw a shooter. I heard him. I was close to the damn thing. Some of our people have been hit. This is horrible. I got bloody running and jumping into the dugout … Many have been shot, but a lot like me got bloody running for cover. It is just a madhouse here. It’s horrible. I’ve never experienced anything like that.

Rep. Mo Brooks told CNN about Scalise’s injuries and said:

He was not able to move under his own power. He was dragging his body from second base. There was not a whole lot we could do. He was shot in the hip. I think it was not a life-threatening wound. It’s not easy when you see people around you being shot and you don’t have a weapon yourself. You feel helpless.

There were reportedly 50 – 60 people at the practice game at the time of the incident.

The practice was taking place in Alexandria, Virginia in the neighborhood of Del Ray at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park, in preparation for the 2017 Congressional Baseball Game, which is currently set for June 15, 2017. Because of the incident, there’s always a chance that changes could be made when it comes to the date of the game. However, as of right now, the game is on schedule.
