Gunman wounds a GOP House leader, then is killed by police

It happened near a YMCA in Alexandria, Virginia, just south of the nation's Capitol, where multiple Republican members of Congress were practicing, CNN reported.

Other photos revealed the van belonging to the raging GOP critic had dark curtains and blinds on the inside.

Scalise's office said the 51-year-old was "in good spirits" before entering surgery, although the hospital later updated his status to critical.

Scalise, No. 3 in the House of Representatives Republican leadership, was shot in the hip at the baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia.

Five people were wounded in the attack, including Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), who was in critical condition after after undergoing surgery, hospital officials told ABC News.

Sen. Jeff Flake said Scalise crawled into the outfield after being shot.

"Please pray for my colleagues", Duncan said. The shooting occurred as several Congressional members and aides were on the field for practice ahead of the annual baseball game, scheduled for Thursday.

"The guy's down to a handgun, he dropped his rifle, they shoot him, I go over there, they put him in handcuffs", Conaway said, adding that if the shooter had "gotten inside the fence, where a bunch of guys were holed up in the dugout, it would have been like shooting fish in a barrel".

President Donald Trump gave a statement later that morning, where he said Hodgkinson had "died from his injuries" at the hospital and that the FBI is investigating the incident further.

Scalise and four others were taken to a nearby hospital, police say. "I extend my best wishes to each of them for a safe and speedy recovery", Kinzinger said in a statement earlier Wednesday.

"The 99 percent are getting pushed around, and the one percent are just not giving a damn", Hodgkinson said in the interview.

Gabrielle Giffords, the former Arizona lawmaker shot during a 2011 assassination attempt, on Wednesday said her "heart is with my former colleagues, their families & staff, and the U.S. Capitol Police - public servants and heroes today and every day". Both are "doing good", Capitol Police Chief Matthew R. Verderosa said. The man thanked him.

"I and others have received death threats", he said. Those two security details, those two Capitol police officers, they showed incredible bravery - pistols against a rifle - from a 90- to 120-feet distance. "Then it would go through a risk assessment, and if it was determined that (the member) needed more security, then they would do it".
