Law enforcement officers investigate the scene of a shooting near a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia, where House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana was shot at a congressional baseball practice.

The shooting victims were practicing for a Congressional baseball game scheduled for the next night when a lone gunman opened fire on the crowd. "Everybody probably would have died except for the fact that the Capitol Hill police were there and the only reason they were there is because we had a member of leadership on our team", Kentucky Senator Rand Paul told MSNBC.

"It didn't used to be this way", Pelosi said of negative political climate. The Texas U.S. Rep., manager of the Republican congressional baseball team, said it was a life-or-death struggle for 10 minutes. In one section of the ballpark, a young woman sported a "Hillary for Prison" t-shirt, a holdover from the nasty 2016 presidential campaign that pitted Clinton, a Democrat, against Trump.

Paul said he was in the batting cage when the gunman fired the first shot, which he initially thought was an isolated shot.

Bailey was not shot but was treated for a minor injury and has been released from a hospital. "I know the Senate will embrace that spirit today as we come together in expressing both our concern and our gratitude".

"They saved lives, and those lives testify to their bravery and selflessness better than words ever will".

Mika is director of government relations for Tyson Foods Washington, D.C., office and has worked for the company for more than six years.
