A man walking his two dogs captured audio and video of the horrific moments when a gunman opened fire on Republican members of Congress at baseball practice Wednesday morning in suburban Washington, D.C.
PBS NewsHour said it obtained the footage from Noah Nathan, who was walking his two golden-doodles near the Alexandria, Virginia, field where the shooting occurred. He dropped to the ground and recorded the horrific scene.
The video is hard to follow, especially at first: The walk is interrupted by one ear-shattering bang, then another.
“Do we know where he’s at?” someone is heard shouting, apparently in reference to the shooter. Later, someone is hurt while expressing concern for one of the shooting victims.
The horrible spectacle unfolds over six minutes of video. There is a flurry of shooting around the four-minute mark, and then people are seen running, from a distance.
Five people were wounded in the attack, including Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), who was in critical condition after after undergoing surgery, hospital officials told ABC News.
The others injured included a Tyson Foods lobbyist, a staffer for U.S. Rep. Roger Williams (R-Tex.) and two Capitol Police officers.
The shooter has been identified as James T. Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old from Illinois. Hodgkinson, who had posted anti-Republican screeds — including against Scalise — was killed by law enforcement officers at the scene.
Hodgkinson had previously publicly expressed his support for Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders, who quickly condemned the violence in a speech and on Twitter.
“I am sickened by this despicable act. Let me be as clear as I can be. Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society,” the former Democratic presidential nominee said.
Democrats and Republicans were preparing to face off for a charity baseball game when the shooting began. Democrats, practicing on a different field, bowed their heads in prayer for their Republican colleagues.
In defiance of the violence, Democrats and Republicans plan to play the charity game as scheduled on Thursday. They will meet at Nationals Park.
