Congressional charity baseball game practice shooting update

Congressional charity baseball game practice shooting update

According to a report by the Daily Caller, Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks was on the hit list of the man who attacked members of Congress and their staff at the baseball field in Alexandria, VA early Wednesday morning.

Reps. Ron DeSantis, R-Florida, and Jeff Duncan, R-South Carolina, told reporters Wednesday that the gunman approached them in their auto and asked whether "Republicans or Democrats" were on the field before the shooting.

Four victims were shot and two had secondary injuries after a gunman opened fire at a practice for a Congressional baseball game on Wednesday in Alexandria, Virginia.

Duncan told reporters the morning of the attack that he had encountered Hodgkinson who asked him if it was Republican or Democratic lawmakers on the field. Scalise remains in critical condition, though doctors said today his vital signs have stabilized.

The FBI said it had recovered and was processing a cellphone, a computer and a camera. Apparently, Hodgkinson failed to recognize Rep. Duncan or lost the nerve to confront him, but thankfully the Clinton, SC Congressman left the parking lots minutes before the shooting started.

He was a home inspector, and owned his own business, but in his free time, it appears politics was Hodgkinson's passion.

Scalise still in critical condition
Scalise was among those shot by a gunman who attacked a GOP team baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday. Jack Sava, the director of trauma at the MedStar Washington Hospital Center, said in a press conference Friday.


U.S. Rep. Mike Bost, a Murphysboro Republican whose 12th Congressional District covers the Belleville, Illinois, area, has said Hodgkinson contacted his offices a number of times, but none of the communication seemed threatening, according to Bost spokesman George O'Connor.

It is worth asking whether the hysteria over Republican President Donald Trump and GOP lawmakers played a role in Hodgkinson's shooting spree.

Hodgkinson was shot and killed by a member of Scalise's security detail.

Steve Scalise, R-La., speaks with the media on Capitol Hill, Wednesday, May 17, 2017 in Washington. Hodgkinson also volunteered for the 2016 presidential campaign of Sen.

"I think that an excellent recovery is a good possibility", Dr. Jack Sava, director of trauma at MedStar Washington Hospital Center said at a news conference Friday afternoon. Hodgkinson later died from his gunshot wounds. Two members of the Capitol Police, Crystal Griner and David Bailey, were also wounded.
