NBC News is reporting the gunman in the Virginia shooting at a congressional baseball practice has been identified as a 66-year-old man from Illinois.
James T. Hodgkinson allegedly opened fire on the baseball practice, injuring at least one member of the House of Representatives - Rep. Steve Scalise.
In a statement made by President Trump, the President says Hodgkinson has died from his injuries.
Previous story: House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and four other people were shot Wednesday morning in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia, NBC News has confirmed.
The five injured include two Capitol Police officers and the gunman, who was shot by police who responded to the scene, said Alexandria Police Chief Michael Brown.
A congressional aide said Scalise, a Republican from Louisiana, was in stable condition at George Washington University Hospital.
The shooting happened in the 400 block of E. Monroe Street. The shooting happened during a baseball practice for congressional Republicans.
Sen. Claire McCaskill tweeted early Wednesday that she had spoken to Capitol Police and that the officers "will be ok."
The Congressional baseball team practices daily at the park and several other congress members were at the park, including Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona.
Witnesses described a terrifying scene, with a gunman who reloaded on the scene and the wounded congressman "screaming for help."
“Scalise was on second base, and was crawling out, leaving a 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.
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."
