Via The Hill:
A "multiple shooting" was reported early Wednesday at a congressional baseball game practice field in Alexandria, Va.
ABC 7 News reported a "multiple shooting" in the 400 block of E. Monroe Street.
The suspect is "believed in custody," ABC reported, according to Alexandria police.
GOP Whip Steve Scalise and two Capitol Police officers on protective detail were shot, according to multiple reports
A reporter from Fox News also tweeted that staffers were hit.
"Right now, we're secure," Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) told CNN.
Brooks said "at least five" people were shot, his voice breaking.
Brooks said Scalise was shot in the hip and was "dragging his body" to get away from the shooter.
Brooks said the gunman had a semi-automatic rifle and stood behind a dugout.
"He appeared to be a white male," Brooks said, adding that he only saw the gunman for a fraction of a second.
From Senator Rand Paul:
After 1st shot there was a rapid succession of shots… saw Scalise shot but moving. “trying to drag himself through the dirt"
Had Capitol Hill police not been there "It probably would have been a massacre"
NBC reporting that everyone is now in stable condition.
