New video shows moments when D.C. shooting began

New video shows the moment the shooting at a GOP Congressional baseball team practice began Wednesday morning, according to the New York Post.

The newspaper said more than 25 bullets can be heard in the footage captured by a witness near Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria, Virginia, where the shooting occurred.

“Do we know where he’s at?” an unidentified person could be heard asking in the video.

“He’s behind home plate,” another person responds.

Five people, including the House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, were injured during a practice for a charity baseball game. It was reported that 14 members of Congress were present on the field.
