Steve Scalise Shot, Wounded, Shooter Said To Be “White Male”
Steve Scalise has been shot, in a mass shooting at Congressional baseball match:
Brooks appeared on CNN to describe how he was on deck waiting to bat during the practice when he heard gun shots. He described how the shooter was subdued, but only after he shot at least five people. Brooks and his colleagues then rushed into the outfield to assist Scalise, who had left a “trail of blood” while he dragged himself from second base to the outfield.
Brooks said he got a look at the gunman and described him as a white male who was “a bit on the chubby side.” Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) subsequently told CNN that the shooter was a white male in his 40s or 50s.
Alexandria Police Chief Michael Brown said that his officers arrived on the scene within three minutes of people called, but wouldn’t give any other information about the shooter. He confirmed that five people were transported medically from the scene.
Sen. Rand Paul, who was also at the practice, told MSNBC that he heard between 50 to 60 shots fired by the gunman. He said he believed the shooter was using an AR-15-style rifle.
“Everybody would’ve died except for the fact that Capitol Hill police were there,” Paul said.
