Federal law enforcement sources identified the shooter as James Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Illinois.

"We may have our differences, but we do well in times like these to remember that everyone who serves in our nation's capital is here, because. above all, they love our country", Trump said during remarks in the Diplomatic Reception Room at the White House. Both are "doing good", Capitol Police Chief Matthew R. Verderosa said. "Had they not been there, it would have been a massacre", Paul said.

A gunman, hiding behind the base dugout at the baseball field in Alexandria, VA., fired about 50 shots before being stopped.

Scalise spokesman Chris Bond said he would be checking with the hospital throughout the day for updates on the condition of the congressman and the other wounded people.

In a brief interview in a Senate hallway, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, "I think everybody handled it well and things seem to be under control".

Brooks said the shooter "appears to be a white male, middle aged". "Matt has worked for Tyson Foods for more than six years and we're deeply concerned about him and his family".

Wednesday's incident was the first shooting of a member of the U.S. Congress since January 2011, when Democratic Representative Gabby Giffords was seriously wounded in an assassination attempt at a gathering of her constituents in Tucson, Arizona.

In a statement, President Donald Trump said that Hodgkinson died from his injuries. "Our thoughts and prayers are with him", Trump tweeted. Neither was at the practice. It's unclear which victim is the one MedStar says is in "good condition".

Scalise was fielding balls on second base when he was shot, Flake said.

Had Trump kept silent, "He would have had a stronger basis because of the ongoing Russian Federation investigation", Rozell added. Comey would not have told Trump he is not a potential target because he knows better than to disclose that kind of information.

"The Second Amendment right to bear arms is to ensure that we always have a republic", Brooks said, according to the Washington Examiner. It continues to fire at different people.

Katie Filous was walking her two dogs near the field when she heard "a lot of shots, probably more than 20".

An aide for Wenstrup said he is unhurt, and that Wenstrup described the shooting as similar to "being in Iraq again, only without his weapon".

Filous said she saw the shooter hit a uniformed law enforcement officer, who she said was later evacuated by helicopter.

Brooks said the return fire distracted the gunman until he was downed by the officers. Only Republicans were at this practice; Democrats practiced separately earlier in the morning. Also on the team is Rep. We are still working to independently confirm that.

"The cowardly and despicable attack that took place this morning targeting members of Congress at a Congressional baseball practice is a sober reminder of the rampant gun violence plaguing America".

"We don't yet know all of the facts surrounding what happened, but the acts of today bring to light the necessity for enhanced security for members of Congress".

Loughner pleaded guilty in 2012 and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
