House Majority Whip Scalise wounded in Northern Virginia shooting; reports of multiple shots fired

Several people were shot Wednesday morning at a congressional baseball practice, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, according to one lawmaker.

The lawmakers were practicing for the annual congressional ballgame when the shooting took place in Alexandria, Va.

According to Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), Scalise was wounded in the shooting.

“He’d crawled into the outfield but leaving a trail of blood. We started giving him some liquids,” Brooks said on CNN.

Brooks was not hit.
