Hodgkinson also shot Matt Mika, who works as a lobbyist for Tyson Foods and was helping to coach the team; Zachary Barth, a legislative correspondent who works for Texas Rep. Roger Williams; and two U.S. Capitol Police Officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner.

"He was this union tradesman, pretty stocky, and we stayed up talking politics", he said.

Capitol Police officers who were in Scalise's security detail wounded the shooter, who was taken into custody. Virginia's Democratic governor, Terry McAuliffe, urged gun control measures.

She said the shooting went on for "quite a while".

But Scalise has been a strong opponent. He later died at an area hospital, they said, citing law enforcement sources.

According to his Facebook page, Hodgkinson was a fervent supporter of Sanders, the feisty independent who battled Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination previous year.

Hodgkinson had posted on his Facebook page, "Trump is a Traitor".

President Trump announced the gunman is dead.

The practice was for a bipartisan baseball game scheduled for Thursday.

"We've got to get back to.where things aren't so personal and we're so judgmental of each other. We've got to stop the violence".

Congress members and their staff were at an early morning practice for the Congressional baseball game when about 50 shots rang out.

Trump also wrote on Twitter that Scalise was "badly injured but will fully recover". "He's a patriot. And he's a fighter".

President Donald Trump said Wednesday, June 14th he and the vice president are "deeply saddened" by news of a shooting "tragedy" at a congressional baseball game. Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of California both spoke on the floor issuing calls for unity. The game has been played for 80 years, and Doyle said it will go on as planned.

The Florida Republican confirmed that a man had walked up to Duncan and DeSantis, asking if the players on the field were Republicans or Democrats. DeSantis gave a similar account.

Mr Sanders swiftly responded to reports the suspect had volunteered on his presidential campaign.

But Loudermilk suggested a broader look at security details for large gatherings of members.

Representative James Clyburn, a Democrat, rejected the idea that the shooting was motivated by partisan politics. "This is not good.' I said 'call for help'".

Senior US congressman Steve Scalise has been shot at a baseball practice in northern Virginia.

"One of them was wounded in the leg", he told CNN.

According to Duncan, the shooter first aimed at Kelly who zig-zagged across the field as shots continued to be fired but missed before hitting Scalise.

"It's hard to contain the emotions", Brooks said.

Also shot were a congressional staffer and members of the Capitol police force. "Those aren't good odds", Brooks said. "That was probably five, ten minutes before the shots were fired".

All votes in the House of Representatives were cancelled for Wednesday.

"When he started shooting, he was shooting to kill people".
