Chilling video has emerged of the shooting that took place Wednesday in Alexandria, Va., where 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Ill., whose social media was rife with anti-Republican and anti-Trump posts, targeted Republican lawmakers as they practiced in advance of the annual Congressional Baseball Game.
Five people in total, including members of the Capitol Police, were injured by the armed assault and the shooter was killed.
The New York Post has published the video and it shows House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), who was shot in the hip, laying motionless on the field.
Many gunshots can be heard and the fear is palpable.
Eventually you can see that Scalise’s colleagues rushed to his side. Scalise was rushed to the hospital, where he had been listed in stable condition.
At the time of this writing, Scalise is now listed in “critical condition” following surgery.
MedStar Washington said in a tweet Wednesday afternoon that Rep. Steve Scalise “was critically injured and remains in critical condition.” It provided no further details about him.
The hospital said another victim of the shooting is in good condition. It did not identify the victim.
The video was recorded by a man who was walking his dog.
