'You Guys Are Next': Reps Receive Threats After Shooting

U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger called wounded fellow Congressman Steve Scalise, "a good friend" and expressed sympathies and praise for the other government officials and staff shot Wednesday morning at a baseball field in Alexandria, Va.

"I am shocked and saddened by the news of this frightful and senseless shooting at a Congressional baseball practice in Virginia this morning". Authorities including FBI Evidence Response Team, ATF, and Alexandria Police Department, are still collecting evidence at the scene, and FBI Springfield and St. Louis Evidence Response Teams are searching the subject's home in Belleville, Ill.

No other members of Congress were shot. Of those shot were reportedly aides to Scalise and officers with the U.S. Capitol Police.

President Trump also said the FBI is investigating the shooting and will provide updates as they become available, and confirmed that Rep. Scalise is in stable condition. Williams did not say what condition the staffer was in.

USA representatives Ron DeSantis and Jeff Duncan had ducked out of baseball practice early on Wednesday when a middle-aged man in the parking lot asked them if the players in red shirts on the field were Republicans or Democrats. Rep. Scalise, a lifelong fan of baseball, had been playing second base when he was shot.

"I was batting, we heard a loud noise".

"I look up and there's a guy with a gun blasting away", he said.

Republican Senator Jeff Flake told reporters some 50 shots rang out in the exchange of fire between the gunman - described as a white man with dark hair, in his 40s or 50s - and law enforcement officers.

"What we have to remember is this: "that the American people. excuse me", Fleischman said holding back tears, ". are great people". "What I witnessed was the bravery of the two Capitol Hill police officers..."

"It would have been a massacre".

Fellow Republican Congressman Mo Brooks told CNN the security detail "exhibited great, great courage".

A dramatic video shows the moments of chaos after a gunman began shooting at a congressional baseball practice on Wednesday. "I look forward to playing once again in the congressional women's softball game next week, this time with a heavy heart and renewed goal".

3 House Republican leader first elected to the House in 2008, was in stable condition and undergoing surgery at a nearby hospital.

"Prior to entering surgery, [Scalise] was in good spirits and spoke to his wife by phone", it added in a statement.
