Many rally around House, Senate Republicans in wake of violent attack during congressional baseball practice
Dozens of leaders have taken to Twitter to condemn the shooting that left numerous members of Congress and Capitol Hill police injured Wednesday after a sniper opened fire on a Republican congressional baseball practice in the Del Rey neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia, right outside D.C.
Here’s what people are saying:
Thank you to the first responders who rushed in to help protect those who were hurt in Alexandria, VA. My thoughts & prayers to everyone!
