He adds, "Our thoughts and prayers are with him".

The shooting happened at a park where members of a congressional baseball team were practicing.

"These guys were real heroes and I think without them everybody probably would have been killed", Paul said.

Brooks told CNN that during batting practice he heard a "bam" and then a quick succession of shots and saw the gunman shooting through the holes in a chain link fence.

One witness said she never saw the attacker's face but cowered in fear as the sound of the gunshots appeared to come closer, as she walked her dogs near the baseball field.

Mr Brooks said other people were also shot, including two police officers.

Scalise, the majority whip who rallies Republican votes in the House of Representatives, "was not able to move on his own power".

"He's loyal to the person he's assigned to protect", Brooks said of the officer. "There was not a whole lot we could do".

The Washington Post provided a lengthy report on the shooter. "You want to make sure the airway is open, make sure the person is breathing and "C" stands for circulation, which is basically trying to control blood loss", he said.

My prayers are with all those affected by this morning's shooting.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday said the gunman who fired on a congressional baseball practice, James T. Hodgkinson, died from his injuries. Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., said his team was practicing when they heard about the attack on the Republicans.

"We're safe & with police, everyone praying for GOP colleagues, staff & Cap police", Huffman tweeted.

Capitol Hill Police notified congressional offices that the security presence on the Hill would be increased "out of an abundance of caution".

The shooting, Ryan said, is a reminder for members to focus on what is important, despite differences. The field serves as a community hub, with games and activities at all hours.
