Eyewitness Posts Harrowing Video Showing Moment Of Congressional Baseball Shooting

An eyewitness video, published by the New York Post, shows the harrowing moments when 66-year-old James Hodgkinson opened fire during the GOP congressional baseball team’s practice in Alexandria, Va. on Wednesday.

More than 50 shots can be heard in the video and a man is shown lying on the ground.

“That guy who’s been shot, is he ok?” the person filming can be heard asking. “Is anybody talking to him?”




House Majority Whip Steve Scalise  (R-La.) and four others were shot in the attack. Scalise, who was shot in the hip, is currently in critical condition after undergoing surgery this afternoon.

Two members of Mr. Scalise’s Capitol Police security detail were wounded when they exchanged fire with the gunman, reports the New York Times.

The shooter died of injuries from a firefight with Capitol Police, President Trump said in a televised statement Wednesday.
