House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) is in stable condition after being shot early Wednesday at a baseball practice field in a Washington D.C. suburb, according to multiple reports.
Scalise was one of several people shot at the practice in Alexandria, Va., where it is believed a single gunman fired as many as 50 shots at lawmakers and aides who scrambled for cover.
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), his voice breaking, told CNN that “at least five” people were shot. Two Capitol Police officers on protective detail were also reportedly shot in the incident.
