Watch the video again.
I think the guy in the dark pants and grey shirt is the shooter.
The reason he is casually walking out from behind that blue shed and throwing his hand up is because he is shooting.
Scalise was readmitted to the Intensive Care Unit and underwent surgery Thursday because of new concerns for an infection. Scalise's office issued a statement Saturday that the Congressman "tolerated the procedure well" and "will continue healing and treatment" at MedStar Washington.

I have to add some commentary here. Looking at the witness statements, and the map. again, it's possible Mika was hit from rounds being shot from the field, from the direction of the shooter. The shed is reported to have been hit, back behind the first base dugout, so being shot in that area is feasible. If he was hit as people were running for cover, to the shed or dugout, or wherever, they might not see him hit. What is needed is evidence showing the trajectories of all rounds fired, if possible, and analysis of all that.
Is there any sort of official mapping of the area/crime scene, that's been released? People can be off in memories, especially in stressful situations.
No official mapping. I based mine on the multiple witness accounts I read.
I can't imagine a scenario where Mike Conaway would run from first base, out the only open gate (right next to first base), and he did not see Mika shot, given his full statements. Mika was already shot by the time he saw him. It would have only taken him seconds to get out the gate and behind the first base dugout.
Conaway was out of the gate quickly and went directly behind the first base dugout where he said he saw Capitol police officers and Mika already on the ground.
Ricocheted shots were reported in the area behind the dugout...but 4 to 5 hitting Mika in the chest and arm before anyone even saw him? That's just not plausible given the physics and timeline of the shots heard.
My concern is that we will never get any clear story on how Mika was shot. The FBI needs two years to investigate and clear Hillary...8 months to investigate Weiner's sexting...but they reached their major conclusions on this shooting within a week.
