Congressman Shot Outside DC

As you can see, we have a very serious breaking news story out of Washington, DC.

In Alexandria, Virginia, immediately across the Potomac River from DC, a gunman (so far unidentified) opened fire on a GOP baseball practice. (This is prep for an annual congressional baseball game that goes back more than a century.) There were apparently a large number of shots. Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the House Majority Whip, was shot in the hip and others were apparently injured. The Alexandria Police Department tweeted that the suspect is in custody.

We will be bringing you information as it becomes available.
