BREAKING NEWS: Representative Roger Williams Reported Shot at GOP Baseball Practice – Apparently Just Injured While Taking Cover

Fox News had reported that Roger Williams, who represents the 25th Congressional District in Texas, was among those shot at the GOP baseball practice in Alexandria, VA this morning.  Listening to live coverage on the network just now, however, police indicated that Williams had not, in fact, been shot, but just injured his leg as he tried to take cover.

Capitol Hill police were present at the practice and returned the guman’s fire.  Reports indicate that the gunman was wounded and taken into custody, although Sentator Mike Lee (R, Utah) had told Fox News that the gunman was dead.

Several congressional staffers have reportedly been shot, in addition to Representative Steve Scalise of Louisiana.  The situation is still developing, so many details are still unclear at this time.
