House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and three other people were wounded Wednesday morning when a gunman opened fire on members of the Republican congressional baseball team as they were practicing on a field in Alexandria, Virginia.

The gunman, James T. Hodgkinson, was then shot by police and later died of his wounds.

Scalise was standing at second base when the shooting erupted and he was hit in the left hip, witnesses said. He managed to drag himself into the outfield amid all the shooting and was later rushed back across the river to a Washington, D.C. hospital.

After undergoing emergency surgery, Scalise was in critical but stable condition, a spokesman for MedStar Washington Hospital Center said.
