Congressman Jack Bergman, northern Michigan’s congressman and an athlete, was on the baseball field in northern Virginia, yesterday morning, when a lone gunman randomly shot at those playing (all high-powered GOP representatives, staffers and lobbyists) on the field. The group was practicing for an annual charity baseball game.

According the CNN,  “Five people were injured in the shooting that has left Majority Whip Steve Scalise in critical condition. The shooter, James Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Illinois died following a shootout with authorities.”

Here’s Rep. Bergman doing one of many media interviews about the horrific incident. Thankfully, the Capitol Police took down Hodgkinson, an individual with a long record of unsavory behavior who hated Republicans, and saved innocent lives. Props also to the First Responders who took care of the wounded.
