This goes to show you that people have lost their ever loving mind with the division in this country. I don’t understand how anyone get’s this far in their own head that leads them to try and commit mass murder and apparently suicide. As he’d had to known prior to committing this heinous crime, there wouldn’t be any coming back from that.
Four people, including the GOP House Leader, were shot when a gunman opened fire at a group of lawmakers and aides practicing for the annual Congressional baseball game. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), pictured above, was shot in the hip and is listed in stable condition before undergoing surgery in Washington, DC.
Also shoot were a congressional aide and two Capitol Hill police officers who were assigned to protect Scalise.
The shooting happened Wednesday morning just after 7 a.m. at a sports facility in Alexandria, Virginia.
Police described the shooting as a “deliberate act”. A witness said the gunman walked up and asked “Are those Republicans or Democrats out there?
The gunman, described as a white male in his 40s, fired as many as 50-60 rifle rounds before Capitol police shot and wounded him. A witness said the gunman and Capitol police exchanged gunfire for 15 minutes. Someone in the dugout was heard yelling “Just shoot him!”
Another witness said the gunman was armed “with an AK-47-type assault rifle” and moved in a “methodical way”.
