Staffer for Texas Rep. Williams shot at congressional baseball practice

Staffer for Texas Rep. Williams shot at congressional baseball practice

The shooter's bullets struck Barth, 24, and four others.

Bleeding from his leg, he said he ran as fast as he could and jumped into the first base dugout with Rep. Williams attempting to take cover from the shooter.

Barth was expected to recover, Williams said; the officers are expected to make full recoveries.

In a statement Wednesday, Williams said that at about 7 a.m. a gunman arrived at the practice and opened fire. "Without them, there would be tremendous loss of life and I probably wouldn't be talking to y'all".

According to Politico reporter Sarah Ferris, a reverend this morning signed "Prayers for Zack" into a guest book outside of Congressman Roger Williams' office.

Barth's Facebook page includes pictures of Houston's sports franchises, of him at Baltimore's Camden Yards ballpark in his Astros gear and of him with Longhorns quarterback Vince Young.

Flake said Scalise was playing second base at a congressional baseball practice when he was shot by a man standing off the third-base side of the field. "Thank you for the thoughts and prayers".

Shots rang out around 8 a.m. ET during Wednesday's baseball practice for Republican congressmen in Alexandria, Virginia.

"He spent some time in NH down the homestretch of the primary helping us with GOTV", National Republican Congressional Committee press secretary Jesse Hunt, also an alum of the Bush campaign, wrote in an email Wednesday morning. Rep. Kevin Brady of The Woodlands left just moments before the gunfire erupted, his office said. Two others were also injured during this incident.

McConnell expressed gratitude for the Capitol Police officers on the scene, as well as other first responders.

A single shooter opened fire while a group of Republican representatives practiced for the traditional bipartisan Congressional baseball game. "I'm very blessed that the bullet went straight through", Barth said.

Managers for the teams said they are taking security precautions for the players and those in the audience for the game. "He held me, I held him".

"Jeff Flake took his belt off and made a tourniquet around Zack's leg to stop the bleeding", Williams added.

"This could have easily been 25 deaths or more today", said Williams, who has represented Burnet County in Congress since 2013. "We saw examples of why all Americans should be grateful every day for law enforcement officers around this country".

Barth, who had been transported to the hospital after the shooting, was back at the Capitol and back on his feet for the TV interview. The gunman, James T. Hodgkinson, died in a shootout with police. He said two of his children were with him at the ballpark when the shooting started.
