Congress Members Shot During Baseball Practice, Suspect in Custody

ALEXANDRIA, Va. - Multiple members of Congress are shot at while practicing for a charity baseball game Wednesday morning in Alexandria, Virginia.

Rep. Steve Scalise, R-Louisiana, is among those injured. 

According to ABC News, a senior member of GOP leadership tells them two members of Scalise's security detail were also hit, as were a staffer and a lobbyist.

A source told ABC News that Scalise's injury was not life-threatening.

The Alexandria Police Department tweeted the suspect is in custody.

In a CNN interview, Rep. Mo Brooks told the network he was on deck at a practice for the congressional baseball team when the shooting occurred. "The gun was a semiautomatic," Brooks said. "It continued to fire at different people. You can imagine, all the people on the field scatter."
