Who was present during the GOP baseball practice shooting

Scalise underwent surgery and is said to be stable, according to President Donald Trump.

United States president Donald Trump said in a Twitter message that Scalise, "a true friend and patriot, was badly injured but will fully recover".

This was a GOP team practice for an annual charity baseball game between Republicans and Democrats.

Capitol Police at the Kansas Statehouse have also increased security related to the shooting.

President Trump has spoken to Scalise's wife and chief of staff, and House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the chief of the Capitol Police. He said Barth "is receiving medical attention but is doing well and is expected to make a full recovery".

U.S. Rep. Roger Williams (Texas) said a member of his congressional staff was among the victims.

U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis of IL credited U.S. Capitol Police officers on the scene, saying had they not been there, it "would have been a massacre". He would not say whether the gunman was one of those transported. "At the same time I hear Steve Scalise over near second base scream".

Alexandria police said a suspect in the shooting was in custody.

In a dramatic blow-by-blow account, representative Mo Brooks of Alabama told CNN the gunman was armed with a rifle and appeared to be a white male.

The game began in 1909 by Rep. John Tener of Pennsylvania, who once played pro baseball for the Baltimore Orioles, among other teams.

He described the gun as a semi-automatic and that the gunman continued shooting at other people.

The video concludes by showing a group of people huddled around an area on the baseball field.




"At least two others were also wounded", Trump added. Ronald DeSantis and Thomas Rooney, were at the practice.

The Washington Post and NBC news, citing unnamed law enforcement officials, identified the attacker as James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois.

The incident happened while Republican members were at a Congressional baseball practice behind the YMCA.

"Everyone on that field is a public servant", Trump said.

Rep. Jeff Duncan said in a statement that he was at the practice and "saw the shooter".

Scalise's injuries are not life-threatening, authorities said. An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us'.

The Republican Party of Florida released a statement about the shooting. The events that unfolded this morning are sad and overwhelming.

"Two of the Capitol Police officers who basically saved our lives were shot".

Steve Scalise, a Louisiana Republican, is the House majority whip. "Our thoughts and prayers are with all affected", Mr Spicer tweeted.

Governor Phil Bryant confirmed in a tweet that no MS lawmakers were hurt during Wednesday morning's shooting. "We are deeply saddened by this tragedy".

Two of the injured officers shot the gunman, who eventually succumbed to his injuries and died, according to Trump.
