What we know about UT grad shot at congressional baseball practice

Rep. Roger Williams' injured staff member was texting others after he was shot, "to alert others of the shooting", Williams said during a press conference Wednesday after a gunman opened fire at the Republican congressional baseball team practice in Alexandria, Va.

Rep. Williams confirmed on social media Wednesday morning that Barth was the aide and that he is expected to make a full recovery.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana was shot this morning at a congressional baseball practice, congressional officials say.

More than 50 shots were estimated to have been fired, but despite the shooting, which left the gunman dead and two other Capitol Police officers in critical condition, the Congressional Baseball game is set to proceed on June 15 as scheduled.

Williams said the Republican team "practices every day from 6 to 8 a.m." and applauded the decision not to cancel the upcoming game, despite the shooting, saying a violent act should not disrupt tradition. "I held him and he held me", Williams said. Jeff Flake of Arizona took off his belt and "made a tourniquet around Zack's leg to stop the bleeding". The gunman is in custody, authorities said.

"I got shot this morning at the baseball fields but I am in the hospital and OK", Barth posted on his page. Last September, he went to work for Austin Congressman Roger Williams as a legislative correspondent. "The thin blue line held today and America should be thankful that this is still the type of country that produces these types of heroes. I think we had 25 team players and about 15 staff but Officers Griner and Bailey prevented that and my family will be forever grateful".

"There were dozens, if not hundreds of shots", said Barton, emotionally recounting the scene on Capitol Hill just hours later, still wearing his baseball jersey and standing next to his 10-year-old son, Jack. He ran into the dugout where Williams was to take cover and Sen.
