Rep. Rodney Davis Talks About Shooting Incident in VA

Congressman Steve Scalise and others were shot and injured at a ballpark in Virginia as he and other Senators were practicing for a charity baseball game.

All are expected to survive, but the shooter has died.

The gunman is identified as 66-year-old James Hodgkinson of Belleville, IL.  He is also described as a supporter of Bernie Sanders whose tweets say "Trump must be destroyed."

Congressman Rodney Davis was at the ballpark when the shots were fired.

Davis tells us, "This political rhetoric and political discourse has led to hate and it's led to gunfire. I never thought I would go to baseball practice and have to dodge bullets. It's got to stop and it's got to stop today!"
