On Wednesday morning, House Republican and majority whip Steve Scalise was shot at a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia in "what sources are calling an apparent 'deliberate attack,'" according to CNN.

The New York Times reports that a "gunman opened fire" during the baseball team practice for Republican members of Congress.

Reportedly, 50 shots were fired as security shot back at the gunman and the players sought cover. Scalise was "shot in the hip," according to the Huffington Post. "Five people, including the suspect, were transported to a local hospital."
