  • Former Alexandria mayor says he talked with shooting suspect every day for the past month and realized he was living out of a gym bag

Congressman Rodney Davis, who was at the congressional baseball practice Virginia when a gunman shot Rep. Steve Scalise and four other people, said the attack "would have been a massacre" if not for the U.S. Capitol police officers who were there.

Paul spokeswoman Kelsey Cooper confirmed that neither Paul nor anyone on his staff were injured, although she said everyone is shaken by the event. The Democratic and Republican House and Senate male lawmakers are scheduled to face off in a charity game Thursday at Nationals Park.

Davis said he made a decision to stop to speak with Fox News on the way back to his office so he could "send that exact message". Officials said several other people, including members of Scalise's security team, were also wounded.

In January 2011, Giffords, a Democrat then representing Arizona's 8th congressional district, was shot in the head during an assassination attempt that resulted in the deaths of six others.

Shimkus housemate in Washington, however, is GOP majority whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana.

"Somebody said, "He's coming around the corner of the field" so we, three of us, immediately ran up the sidewalk between two apartment buildings and a Good Samaritan saw us running and said, 'Come in, '" Davis said.

"These guys were heroes and without them everybody would have been killed", the Senator said.

In a telephone interview with CBS News, Paul said he was taking batting practice in right field when five to 10 gunshots rang out and "everybody hit the dirt".

Buddy Carter and Rick Allen, as well as South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford are all safe following the shooting at a GOP Congressional baseball practice.

It is pertinent to mention that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to visit Washington on June 26 at the invitation of U.S. President Donald Trump.

CBS News reported the shooter has been identified as James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, and that he died later at the hospital. "We can all agree that we are blessed to be Americans that our children deserve to grow up in a nation of safety and peace and that we are strongest when we are unified". "But, it's the political hate and the rhetoric that has ratcheted up that has got to stop", said Davis. We are the United States of America.
