Williams confirmed on his Twitter account that the staffer who was shot is Zack Barth. Rep. Williams has been the coach of the team since he joined Congress in 2013.

"There was a lot of heroes today among my friends", he emphasized. We were sitting ducks. "This is a game going on for over 100 years, it goes to charity and we need to play this baseball game and so I'm excited that we've chose to do that". "It could have been a bad situation if he could have gotten onto the field".

Witnesses said a gunman fired a torrent of bullets at the ballfield around 7 a.m. Police identified the shooter as 66-year-old James Hodgkinson of IL, who was shot by Capitol Police officers and later died from his injuries.

Scalise was shot, along with Williams' aide Barth and a former congressional aide turned lobbyist, Matt Mika.

Hodgkinson was fatally shot by police.

"I just want to thank the security detail because they saved our lives", Barton said. "They literally did that". "But Officers Griner and Bailey prevented that and my family and I will be forever grateful".

A Houston man has been named as one of the victims of Wednesday morning's shooting at a GOP baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia. But three other Texas congressmen who attended weren't injured. Chuck Fleischmann was on the phone yelling at a dispatcher to "hurry up and get here". He said his 10-year-old son, Jack, took cover under an SUV. As a result, Williams injured his right ankle, knee and foot, for which he was later treated at an Alexandria hospital. Williams said he was not shot but that a member of his staff was and is receiving medical attention. "He held me. I held him". "(Rep.) Jeff Flake took his belt off and made a tourniquet around Zach's leg to stop the bleeding. Officials said several other people were also wounded.

Williams said the feeling among his Congressional comrades is the game needs to go on as planned. I think we were supposed to have breakfast tomorrow. This is a game that has gone on for over 100 years and it is for charity. We need to play.
