Trump calls for unity after Scalise shooting

Jeff Flake, R-Ariz. "All of a sudden we heard a very loud shot". President Donald Trump revealed he had died in an afternoon news conference.

Can't see the video below? "He was dragging his body from the second base infield to the outfield to get away from the shooter while all this firing was going on", Brooks said.

"Melania and I are grateful for their heroism and praying for the swift recovery of all victims", Trump said of himself and the first lady.

Fox News said House of Representatives Majority Whip Steve Scalise and aides have been hit by gunfire.

"I'm just lucky he chose not to shoot me", Fleischmann told an NBC reporter several hours after the man with a rifle shot at least four people including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-Louisiana, at the Alexandria, Va., field.

Officials said several other people were also wounded. The audio recording, with portions trimmed of dead air, runs for about 10 minutes. According to reports, a gunman walked up to practice and opened fire on the baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.

The CNN cited Flake as saying once the shooter was neutralized, he and U.S. Rep. Brad Wenstrup went out to where Scalise was lying to apply pressure to his wound and that Scalise was coherent the whole time. Proceeds from the game are contributed to multiple Washington, D.C. charities, including the local Boys and Girls Club and the Washington Literacy Center.

"Obviously, we don't know the motives of the shooter", Fleischmann said.

"The gun was a semiautomatic", Brooks said.

Trump said he spoke with Capitol Police Chief Matthew R. Verderosa "to express our sympathies for his wounded officers and to express my admiration for their courage".

Fleischmann, R-Ooltewah, said he's taken part in the annual game for seven years. He was reportedly shot in the hip and is expected to recover. "He was shot", said Brooks, adding he helped apply a tourniquet with his belt to a congressional staffer who was shot in the leg.

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

The Vice President and I are aware of the shooting incident in Virginia and are monitoring developments closely.

The shooting marks the first time a sitting member of Congress has been shot since Rep.

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