House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other Bay Area politicians have responded to this morning's shooting at a baseball diamond outside Washington, DC that involved several Republican members of Congress. "... While all of this is going on, Steve Scalise our whip was lying on the ground near the second base position crawling into right field, leaving a trail of blood". We are all praying for those who were attacked and for their families: Steve Scalise, Zachary Barth, Matt Mika, Special Agent David Bailey, Special Agent Crystal Griner. In all, five people were taken to area hospitals, including the suspect, Alexandria police said.

President Donald Trump says the assailant in the congressional shooting has died from his injuries. "Their sacrifice makes democracy possible".

Congressman Ryan Costello, R-6, whose district includes portions of Western Montgomery County plus parts of Berks, Chester and Lebanon counties, has played for the Republican Congressional Baseball Team for the past two years. "I ask each of you to join me".

You might not realize it, but almost all of Wisconsin's congressional delegation doesn't travel with their own security guards, and they plan to keep it that way - even after a shooting Wednesday, June 14th during a congressional baseball practice in Virginia. He added that Scalise will be missed from the game, but will be fine. Scalise was in stable condition. "An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us", Mr. Ryan declared in opening the House for its noon session.

Those practicing banded together to survive the shooting, including Rep. The man thanked him. He said the gunman had "a rifle of some sort. a lot of ammo". Jeff Flake told CNN.

The shocking event left the Capitol horrified and stunned.

A prototype Apple HomePod is seen during the annual Apple Worldwide Developer Conference ( WWDC ) in San Jose, California, U.S. At just under 7 inches tall, HomePod can be placed nearly anywhere in the home and is available in white and space gray.

The business of the House is resuming a day after a rifle-wielding attacker opened fire on Republican lawmakers practicing for a charity baseball game.

The Congressional Baseball Game, for which Scalise and his GOP colleagues where practicing when they were attacked, will continue as planned Thursday at Nationals Park, Ryan said.

Yet as the day wore on, neither Republicans nor Democrats offered up new ideas on bridging the political divide, and the parties' differences on gun control in particular became clearer than ever.

Rep. Roger Williams, R-Tex., was seen being taken from the field on a stretcher, but he was reportedly injured while jumping into the dugout as the shots rang out.

Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, grew emotional as he described what he saw to reporters when he returned to the House. So I appreciate anyone who is willing to step up to plate, defend us, defend our freedom, protect public safety. He commended the bravery of those who came to the rescue.
