Houston man among wounded in Alexandria shooting

Rep. Roger Williams (R-TX) held a press conference Wednesday evening providing an eyewitness account of the shooting at the congressional baseball practice that morning and praising the heroic response of the Capitol police and his colleagues.

In Neugebauer's office, he was a policy assistant and staff assistant, according to Legistorm.

Scalise was shot, along with Williams' aide Barth and a former congressional aide turned lobbyist, Matt Mika.

Among the five injured was Zack Barth, a correspondence staffer for Austin-area Rep. Roger Williams.

The Republican baseball team holds practice every morning at 6:30 a.m. News reports said that in addition to Barth and Scalise, two Capitol Hill police officers were also shot.

Scalise was hit in the hip and is expected to survive. The suspect, identified as James T. Hodgkinson, 66, died from his injuries, according to President Donald Trump.

Williams said he "ran to the first base dugout which is in the ground about 7 feet and I literally dove into that dugout be like diving I guess into a swimming pool with no water".

U.S. Rep. Marc Veasey of Fort Worth, the lone Texan on the Democrats' congressional baseball team, tweeted his support and prayers after news of the shooting came out.

The UT Community's hearts go out to Zachary Barth, a UT Austin alumnus and staffer for Congressman Roger Williams, who was injured in this morning's Congressional baseball shooting. Williams has served as the Republican baseball team's coach since joining Congress in 2013. CNN reported that the shooter is in police custody and was taken to a hospital.

Four Texas congressmen who were practicing for tomorrow's congressional baseball game, an annual tradition between Democrats and Republicans, are confirmed to be safe.
