Posted June 16, 2017

Rep. Williams (R-Austin) confirmed Zack Barth, a legislative correspondent in his office, was shot at baseball practice.

Rep. Marc Veasey, who practices in Washington on the Democrats' team, tweeted about the incident, as did Texas Governor Greg Abbott. Williams said he injured his leg and ankle diving to safety in the dugout.

Witnesses said a gunman fired a torrent of bullets at the ballfield around 7 a.m. Police identified the shooter as 66-year-old James Hodgkinson of IL, who was shot by Capitol Police officers and later died from his injuries.

Williams said as they were all stepping back trying to get away, it was two Capitol officers who stepped forward and saved the lives of many.
