Multiple People Shot in Del Ray Section of Alexandria

Four of the five members of the San Diego-area congressional delegation called today for prayers for Rep. Steve Scalise, R- Louisiana, and four others who were shot today at a ballpark in Alexandria, Virginia, while practicing for an annual charity baseball game.

Update, 11:42 am: President Trump has announced that the assailant, James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, has died of his injuries. The extent of the injuries was not immediately known.

Michigan Congressman Mike Bishop said Scalise was standing on second base - located relatively in the middle of the field - when the gunman opened fire. Trump said all of them are in stable condition.

"And to the far end, I'm in the dugout now on the first base side and to my right I start hearing 'Bam, bam, bam, bam, ' and I look up, there's a guy with a pistol". Republican Mo Brooks from Alabama told the USA news broadcaster that the Louisiana Congressman sustained "a hip wound".

President Donald Trump is making an evening visit to the hospital where the United States congressman who was critically wounded Wednesday at baseball practice is receiving treatment. The Alabama lawmaker said he colleague "crawled into the outfield, leaving a trail of blood".

It is unclear if Hodgkinson was aiming for Scalise, but given the shooter's vantage point, it is possible his missed rounds hit the Republican whip. "We were like sitting ducks, we had no place to run".

Republican Senator Jeff Flake told reporters some 50 shots rang out in the exchange of fire between the gunman - described as a white man with dark hair, in his 40s or 50s - and law enforcement officers.

Rep. Scott Tipton (R-CO) tweeted about the shooting - "I'm incredibly grateful for the bravery shown by US Capitol police everyday". His demeanor was "calm", witness Falisa Peoples said.

"I believe I saw the shooter and am in the process of giving a statement to the police".

"He will recover from this assault and, Steve, I want you to know that you have the prayers of the entire city behind you, but also of the entire nation, and frankly the entire world", Trump said.
