Gunman shoots U.S. congressman

Police say a gunman opened fire on Republican members of Congress during a baseball practice near Washington early on Wednesday.

Police said that the gunman wounded several people including House of Representatives Majority Whip Steve Scalise before being taken into custody.

The shooter appeared to be a white male, “a little bit on the chubby side,’’ Representative Mo Brooks told CNN, adding that he only saw the man for second.

Brooks said he heard 10 to 20 rounds from the gunman’s rifle before the security detail returned fire.

He said there were 20 to 25 members of team at the practice in Alexandria, Virginia, when the gunfire erupted.
