New York area lawmakers react to Alexandria shooting

"The Vice President and I are aware of the shooting incident in Virginia and are monitoring developments closely", said Trump in a statement.

Trump said he spoke with Scalise's wife, Jennifer, and has pledged "our full, absolute support" to her and their family.

U.S. Rep. Patrick Meehan, a Republican who represents parts of the Philadelphia suburbs, is also a member of the team but reportedly was not at the practice.

Steve Scalise is the third-highest ranked member of the Republican leadership in the House, and has the hard job of trying to keep order in the fractious party ranks and rounding up votes for bills.

He said he has also spoken with Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa to express sympathies for the wounded officers and to express his admiration for their courage.

Brooks said there were a number of congressmen and congressional staffers lying on the ground, and at least one of them was wounded.

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told The Post that Capitol Police officers walked into the congressional gym around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday and told members about the shooting and said Scalise had been shot. "I was looking right at him", Bishop told Detroit radio station WWJ.

Alexandria Police Department Chief Michael Brown said the suspect was one of five people transported to area hospitals. Below is the statement issued by Rep. Scalia. We are still waiting for additional details, but my dear friend and colleague, Congressman Steve Scalise, members of his U.S. Capitol Police detail, and perhaps other staff members were among those harmed.

Updated at 8:24 a.m.

Trump addressed the nation less than five hours after the shooting that wounded Rep. Steve Scalise, congressional staffer Zach Barth, former congressional staffer Matt Mika, and two Capitol Police officers at a baseball field in Alexandria, Va., just outside of Washington.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was among the shooting victims.

Kentucky leaders comment on the shooting that occurred Tuesday morning at the congressional baseball practice in Virginia. Several other people were also believed to have been hit, according to a lawmaker who witnessed the shooting. They were in good spirits despite the heat and humidity as they prepared for the congressional baseball match that pits Republicans against Democrats.
