On June 14, 66-year-old James Hodgkinson of IL opened fire during a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.

He shot the third-highest-ranking House Republican, whip Steve Scalise, and injured four others at the field just outside of Washington about 7am on Wednesday (9pm AEST).

Scalise, the majority whip of the House of Representatives, is among the reported five people who were shot. The married father-of-two also chairs the House Republican Study Committee and is the No. 3 House Republican leader.

"Please pray for my colleagues", Duncan said. He said he was preparing to leave the baseball field when a man politely asked him whether it was a Democratic or Republican team before quietly walking off. He said the congressman dragged himself 10 to 15 yards into the outfield to get further away from the gunman. He said he grabbed Scalise's phone to call his wife. Nothing about the man "struck me as being out of the ordinary".
