This is so scary!

As we reported, a gunman — now identified as 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois — opened fire on a group of GOP congressmen and aides practicing for a charity baseball game early Wednesday, leaving multiple people wounded.

One of the victims was majority whip Steve Scalise, who was shot in the hip but is in stable condition and is undergoing surgery.

Such a devastating reminder of gun violence in our country. Our hearts go out to those affected by this morning’s attack, and we applaud those who were able to prevent further tragedy.
