Rep. Roger Williams: A Lot of Heroes Today Among My Friends

Republican congressmen and their staff were practicing as they do every morning at 6:30 a.m. EDT at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria, Virginia, for the Congressional Baseball Game when, at about 7 a.m. EDT, a man later identified as 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson of Bellevue, Illinois, opened fire on the assembled representatives.

Shots rang out during a baseball practice Wednesday for Republican congressmen in Alexandria, Virginia. "He held me. I held him".

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana was also hit by gunfire. Williams, the coach of the team, was not shot, however a member of his staff was shot and is receiving medical attention, according to a press release issued by his staff. The gunman is in custody, authorities said. "This is a game going on for over 100 years, it goes to charity and we need to play this baseball game and so I'm excited that we've made a decision to do that". Rep. Kevin Brady of The Woodlands left just moments before the gunfire erupted, his office said. "Some of us were on the ground", Barton said.

Conway, of Midland, posted a brief message about the shooting on Facebook, saying he was unharmed and asking people to keep those wounded "in your prayers today".
