Houstonian, victim of Alexandria shooting released from hospital

John Hodgkinson 66 opened fire on the lawmakers hitting house whip Steve Scalise who is in critical condition as well as a staffer. Police shot Hodgkinson down but he injured them too

Williams said he and his staff member, Zach Barth, hugged each other during the gunfire.

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) was among those shot on Wednesday morning, according to Fox News reporter Chad Pergram.

Williams said he dove into the concrete floor of the first-base dugout, which he described as being "like diving into a swimming pool without water".

In a statement Wednesday, Williams said that at about 7 a.m. a gunman arrived at the practice and opened fire.

Scalise, who is the majority whip, and a number of aides and Capitol Police officers were shot Wednesday morning.

Emotions were running high as Congressman Roger Williams from Texas held a press conference to speak about a shooting in Alexandria.

"I looked out at second base, where Steve and I play". "He was letting people know we need help".

Scalise, who was shot in the left hip, remained in critical condition Thursday with further surgery planned.

"He's very proud of his Louisiana heritage", said Rep. Leonard Lance, New Jersey Republican, who says Mr. Scalise occasionally takes congressmen out for Cajun food in D.C. On Wednesday night, the eve of Thursday's game, Doyle announced that the Democratic team had invited the GOP team to dinner at their club. "At that point, I got struck in leg, and made a run for it", said Barth.

Rep. Roger Williams, 67, of Texas sustained a leg-ankle injury. Jeff Flake used his belt to make a tourniquet around Barth's leg to stop the bleeding while Rep.

"I think it's important because I think these people that want to destroy our lives and our livelihood here in America, they win if we give in", he explained.

"When I got into the dugout". In a televised address, President Donald Trump said that the shooter, identified by multiple news outlets as James Hodgkinson, 66, of IL, died from his injuries in the shooting.

United States 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.

He said never thought he'd go to a baseball practice and "have to dodge bullets". An autopsy report released Wednesday showed the 56-year-old had. They saved all of our lives.

The congressman said he was hitting ground balls to Scalise when the shots began, "The first one (ground ball) I hit him, the shots went off".
