Massacre Avoided as Republican Congressman Steve Scalise, Others Shot at Alexandria, Virginia, Baseball Park

Shots were fired a little while ago in the opening round of the new Civil War.

Unlike Civil War I, Civil War II will feature liberal vs conservative, Republican vs. Democrat, and the rational against the nut jobs.

A massacre was avoided when capital police engaged the gunman in a firefight, apparently wounding him.

Liberals are praying that the shooter is a disgruntled white male racist. The worst news for liberals would be if a Muslim or Mexican turns out to be the shooter.

NBC News

WASHINGTON — House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was among at least two people shot Wednesday morning during a GOP baseball practice at an Alexandria, Virginia, ball field, NBC News confirmed.

He was in stable condition, said two different senior-level GOP aides. One source said the Republican lawmaker was wounded in the hip area.

Two sources said at least one Capitol Police officer was also shot.

Police confirmed in tweets that it was investigating reports of a “multiple shooting” and that the suspect was “in custody” and “not a threat.” The victims were being rushed to the hospital.

Sen. Rand Paul, who was among the lawmakers at the scene, told MSNBC that Scalise as a House leader always has Capitol Police with him as security detail. Scalise has represented Louisiana’s 1st District since 2008. It was not immediately clear if the wounded officer was part of Scalise’s detail.

Rep. Steve Pearce of New Mexico tweeted that he was at the GOP’s baseball practice and was “alright.”

President Donald Trump released a statement after being briefed: “The Vice President and I are aware of the shooting incident in Virginia and are monitoring developments closely. We are deeply saddened by this tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the members of Congress, their staffs, Capitol Police, first responders, and all others affected.”

The calls for “gun control” (disarming law abiding citizens) will be coming on strong today.

More assorted reactions:

NBC Washington

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and multiple other people were shot Wednesday morning in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia, NBC News has confirmed.

The shooting happened in the 400 block of E. Monroe Avenue. As many as five people were shot, according to NBC News, including the gunman.

A congressional aide said Scalise, R-La., was in stable condition at George Washington University Hospital.

Two Capital Police officers were among those shot as well. Those officers are with the dignitary protection unit.

Sen. Claire McCaskill tweeted early Wednesday that she had spoken to Capitol Police and that the officers “will be ok.”

President Trump issued a statement: “Vice President and I are aware of the shooting incident in Virginia and are monitoring developments closely. We are deeply saddened by this tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the members of Congress, their staffs, Capitol Police, first responders, and all others affected.”

The shooting happened during a baseball practice for congressional Republicans.

Witnesses described hearing Scalise “screaming for help” after the gunman shot his security detail.

“Scalise was on second base, and was crawling out, leaving trail of blood,” said Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., in an interview on CNN.

He was helped by other members of Congress, including Rep. Brad Wenstrup, R-Ohio. He “started doing what you need to do to stop the blood loss,” Brooks said.

Witness David Woodruff said he was running past the field when he heard 12 to 14 gunshots, a brief pause and then four more shots.
Woodruff said he ducked into a garage and called 911.

“Other witnesses here told me that they heard upwards of 60 shots. Again, it sounded like there was a rather lengthy gun battle between those Capitol protective detail and the assailant….,” Woodruff said.

He said he saw a U.S. Park Police helicopter depart with two victims and at least one ambulance leave with police protection.

Reba Winstead lives near the scene of the shooting, and says she heard at least 30 shots as she was getting her daughter dressed for school.

“Boom, boom, boom, boom for the first 10 our so, then there was a pause and then they started up again,” Winstead said. “It was just a calm morning and then all of a sudden there’s gunfire in our neighborhood. ”

Another apparent witness to the event, Benjamin Childers, wrote on Twitter that someone opened fire on a baseball field where congressional Republicans were practicing and he heard many shots.
“We had three members of Congress take shelter in our apartment,” he said on a live stream, as sounds of emergency vehicles could be heard. “The three weren’t shot.” NBC was reaching out to him for comment.

A baseball game was scheduled for Thursday, according to Roll Call.
Police confirmed that the suspect is in custody. Though they said there was no longer an active threat, all Alexandria schools are on “lock-in” status and police are advising residents to stay away from the area.

  1. My first guess is that this was a real (non expert) shooter with a handgun. Everybody wounded and nobody dead, amateurs often only kill one in ten of those they hit. With false flags and professional experts using long arms, up to 90% of those hit die. Then the shooter escapes Scot free, often implicating a highly conspicuous patsy who looks the same as the real shooter.

    Was this shooter a Bernie fan? If so he should have shot a Democrat game, not a Republican one. I.e. Trump had nothing to do with derailing (((Bernie))). It was the (((Democrat Party Machine))).

  2. Hmmm…. still no word on the identity of the gunman…thats funny – they seem to know who the arabs are before any alleged attack…Since the shooter has been in custody allegedly for hours, why no press release?!? my guess is that they are withholding the info to give them time to create a false persona who will undoubtedly be a white, middle aged male thats probably upset about the removal of Confederate memorials in Louisiana…

  3. The wiki covers up the background of Hannah. But the piggy Streisand face tells us she adopted a Valleys Troll name for v good reason.
    Piggi MYOFB Roberts – Mr K, we’re not dumb porcine trolls & you’ll respect us if we swallow?
    Mr K – Shure [handclasp]

  4. Thank God that these cuck faggot liberals can not shoot straight. Will make it easier for us when the time comes.

  5. The socialist/communistideology being spewed by the Democrats should be closely scrutinized by Americans. Their rigid system of belief that they must, by force, take down a duly elected president and thwart his appointed is a big clue to an ideology of evil which, desiresto ignore the fact that Americanvoters chose Mr. Trump to represent them instead of Hillary Clinton. The democrat attempt to link Trump to Russians is an imbecile manuever in light of documented evidence of Clinton as Sec. of State arranging for the Russians to own American uranium without a murmer. Also James Comey reported ties to HSBC/Clinton Foundation dealings never seems to see light of day. In face of this democrat fomented violence against Republicanrepresentatives on a ball field, they will shamelessly turn it into another excuse for seizing lawful owners’ guns. They aren’t hard to predict. They have culpability for this democrats violent attempt to murder through all their schemes to cause riot and civil disobedience. Thomas Jefferson was right that Americans should have only one affiliation. Loyalty to our Constitutional Republic. Adherence to rule of law. The perspective that we are all Americans who should not be dividing our strength of unity into party systems run by agendas that seem to want destruction of the long held values of Individual freedom that is tied to moral responsibility to wish for our fellow man the same that we wish for ourselves and our loved ones.
