Valerie Vining @ValerieVining 26m26 minutes ago More Rifle attack at a GOP baseball practice. 50 shots fired.At least 5 people shot. More coming up @realtalk995
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and aides were shot at a baseball practice in Virginia Wednesday, Fox News confirmed. The shots were reported on East Monroe Street in Del Ray, Alexandria police said on Twitter at 7:30 a.m. The location was near a YMCA.
Members of Congress and staffers sitting targets on the baseball field itself, surrounded by fence. Paul was int he batting cage. Scalise shot and tried to crawl away as best he could but was pinned down on the field. One staffer scaled a 20 foot fence to go hide. Heard fifty or sixty shots. One shot then a rapid succession of shots. Sounded like an AR-15. Coming from the outfield around the third base line. People pinned down in dugout and also behind out building. Shots hitting the dirt around people laying low on the field.
If Scalise wouldn't have been there, Capitol Police wouldn't have been there. Scalise being there saved other peoples lives. Otherwise it would have been a massacre. One Capitol Police Officer was still protecting the scene even though he was shot. Fellow Congressmen put tourniquet on Scalise.
They have been practicing at that field for two months for the game. Just Republicans at this practice.
