Early this morning a gunman opened fire at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia. Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), two Capitol Hill officers, and a congressional aide were injured but are expected to be okay.
The gunman is in custody, so keep your eyes peeled for reports of his motivation. Rep. Mark Walker (R-NC) says he was there to “kill as many Republican members as possible.” Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) recalled just before the shooting that “there was a guy that walked up to us that was asking whether it was Republicans or Democrats out there.”
