Congressman Steve Scalise, Three Others Shot at Alexandria, Virginia, Baseball Field
By Alex Moe, Erik Ortiz | NBC News | June 14, 2017, 10:30AM ET


WASHINGTON — House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was among at least four people wounded Wednesday morning when a gunman opened fire during a congressional baseball practice at an Alexandria, Virginia, park.

The Republican lawmaker was transported to MedStar Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C., where he was in stable condition and undergoing surgery. Scalise was injured in the hip.

"Prior to entering surgery, the Whip was in good spirits and spoke to his wife by phone," Scalise's office said in a statement. "He is grateful for the brave actions of U.S. Capitol Police, first responders, and colleagues."

Two Capitol Police officers were also wounded and their injuries are not considered life-threatening.

A statement from Congressman Roger Williams' office said the Texas Republican was not wounded, but a member of his staff was shot and taken to the hospital. "Please keep the member of my staff and all members of the congressional baseball team in your thoughts and prayers," Williams tweeted.

Alexandria Police Chief Michael Brown said five people were taken to local hospitals, including the suspect, following the shooting, which began shortly after 7 a.m. Brown declined to give conditions or identify the victims.

A spokeswoman for George Washington Hospital said two patients were brought to the facility and listed in critical condition, but declined further comment.

Brown said officers at the scene returned gunfire with the suspect, who was eventually taken into custody and is no longer a threat.

'"It's an active scene. We're having a lot of people to interview," Brown said.

Multiple law enforcement officials with knowledge of the investigation told NBC News that at there was no immediate indication that the shooter has ties to international terrorism.

Both Democratic and GOP members of the House and Senate have been using the baseball field each morning in Alexandria's Del Ray neighborhood in preparation for a bipartisan game scheduled for Thursday. The Democrats had reportedly practiced earlier in the morning. Thursday's game was supposed to honor the victims of recent terror attacks in Manchester and London.

Sen. Rand Paul, who was at the batting cages at the field, told MSNBC that Scalise as a House leader always has Capitol Police with him as security detail. Scalise has represented Louisiana's 1st District since 2008. It was not immediately clear if the wounded officer was part of Scalise's detail.

"There was a rapid succession of shots, you know five or 10 shots," Paul said. "In the field, I see Representative Scalise is shot but moving, and he’s trying to drag himself through the dirt and out into the outfield."

"I probably heard 50-60 shots," Rand added. "Then finally we heard the response from the Capitol Hill police."

This is a direct result of the Trump is Hitler narrative that has been so scurrilously pushed by Comey, Clinton, Pelosi, Waters, McCain, McCain, McCain, (did I mention the evil McCain) the entire Never Trump cabal, the entire DNC, the MSM court jesters, et al.

A man came to kill these men because he has believed a lie promoted by their evil words.

Thank God Scalise’s security detail was there. If not there would have been a far worse massacre.

Rodney Davis (R) was there and he is saying it is a result of “Political Rhetorical Terrorism.” Amen Davis, preach.

Stay locked and loaded.

War is here.

Bernie Sanders’ campaign worker James T Hodgkison (66) shot five people:

House GOP Whip Steve Scalise
Zak Barth (congressional aide)
Matt Mika (lobbyist)
David Bailey (capitol hill police)
Krystal Griner (capitol hill police)


It will be interesting to see if the Democrats on Capitol Hill continue supporting political violence against President Trump and Republicans now that their supporters have started shooting people.

They need to classify "Liberalism" as a psychiatric condition.

And declare The Democrat Party to be a Terrorist Organization.


You have a violent criminal like Hillary, heading an organization, and "Antifa" street thugs

Seriously... supporting Bernie is a sign of ignorance, low IQ, likely psychiatric problems.

ALL Bernie supporters need to be watched.. maybe caged.

EXCLUSIVE: Congress shooter was rude loner who creeped out female bar staff at BBQ restaurant where he spent happy hours - after moving to D.C. to protest president he hated

• Trump-hating James Hodgkinson moved to Washington D.C. because he wanted to protest the president
• He set up a P.O. box at a UPS shop in Alexandria, VA, but put an apartment number on it to make it look like he had a real address
• Ex-mayor of the D.C. suburb says 66-year-old showered at the YMCA and appeared to be living out of his gym bag
• Hodgkinson ate at a BBQ restaurant in central Alexandria - but staff there tell DailyMail.com he creeped out female bartenders
• Bud drinker would come in for happy hour but was rude and stared out the window; he didn't speak about politics
• Bernie Sanders-lover told his wife on Tuesday that he was coming back to Belleville, Illinois, because he missed her and his dogs

By Alana Goodman In Alexandria, Virginia, For Dailymail.com and Louise Boyle In Alexandria, Virginia, For Dailymail.com

Published: 15:48 EDT, 14 June 2017 | Updated: 17:02 EDT, 14 June 2017


The man who shot up a congressional baseball practice on Wednesday was a regular at a sports bar in Alexandria where he 'creeped out' the female bartenders while he drank by himself watching golf, staffers at the restaurant told the DailyMail.com

James Hodgkinson, 66, died from gun injuries on Wednesday hours after he opened fire on a group of Republican congressmen and their aides who were practicing for a congressional baseball game in the Washington, D.C. suburb. Rep. Steve Scalise and four others were injured, and all are in stable condition.

Hodgkinson, who is from Illinois, had been living in Alexandria for the past few months before the shooting.

He frequented Pork Barrel BBQ, a local bar near the baseball field, often stopping in during happy hour or to watch golf games.

'He definitely creeped out all our female bartenders,' said Jamie Craig, a bartender at the restaurant. 'I tried to shy away from him… just a feeling, he gave me a weird, odd vibe.'

This sort of incident is EXACTLY what the left want.. they continue to clamor for it.

"Resist" is code for violence.

Throwing bricks and firebombs at people is an attempt to injure, likely kill. The use of a gun is not really any different in intent and savagery.

All of the people on the Left are PLEASED about this attack. Some mouth platitudes, but they still have the same mindset... violence is not only OK.. but is required.
