"Thank you for the thoughts and prayers".

"When I got into the dugout it wasn't ten seconds then Zack had come running in from the outfield and he literally, we landed in each other's arms".

Williams also injured his ankle during the shooting.

A member of Congressman Roger Williams' staff and a House Republican leader were among six people shot Wednesday when a gunman opened fire at a lawmaker baseball practice. Williams said he was not shot but that a member of his staff was and is receiving medical attention.

Asked about the gunman, Williams said he believes Hodgkinson had "an issue" that arose from a hypersensitive political climate in Washington, D.C., and in the nation this year. He became a legislative correspondent in September 2016.

"It pains me to say this, coming from Texas, but Scalise is not just my close friend, but he's a proud LSU tiger", Brady said.

Randy Neugebauer reads the Bible on May 2nd, 2006 during the 16th US Capitol Bible Reading Marathon on the West Lawn of the US Capitol in Washington, DC.

A national association that represents investor-owned electric companies has elected its first woman to serve as chairman of the board. Prior to that, he worked as policy assistant with Rep.

Like Randy Neugebauer himself, Zack Barth is evidently a religious person. "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".

And on his Twitter account, his bio reads, "I like God, my family, sports, politics, and Mexican food".

In the aftermath of the shooting, Barth, who graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2015 with a bachelor's degree in government, posted on social media that he is in the hospital and is okay.

While he was in college, Barth interned for Houston Mayor Pro-Tem Ed Gonzalez.

Scalise, who is the majority whip, and a number of aides and Capitol Police officers were shot Wednesday morning.

Barth has since been released from the hospital.

Roger Williams has confirmed the identity of his staffer who was among the wounded in a shooting at a baseball field in Alexandria, Va. early Wednesday.

Zack Barth was shot during a GOP baseball practice on Wednesday in Virginia.

"The Republican baseball team holds practice every morning at 6:30am ET at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria, Virginia".

Williams said as they were all stepping back trying to get away, it was two Capitol officers who stepped forward and saved the lives of many. "It wasn't a fair fight", said Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama, who was at the practice.

Members in the dugout crowded around Barton's young son, who was attending the practice with his father, to protect him.

"My prayers are with Zack and everyone hurt in this morning's shooting", Bush tweeted. If you punch us, we are going to punch back.
