GOP Whip Steve Scalise among those shot at Del Ray park

He had a history of posting angry messages against Trump and other Republicans on social media.

Some Republican lawmakers pointed to the president's own rhetoric.

Davis and dozens of GOP congressmen were at a park in Alexandria, Virginia, just outside Washington, practicing for a charity baseball game with Democrats scheduled for tonight. This has got to stop.

"We believe the shooter has been living out of his vehicle in the vicinity of East Monroe", said Timothy Slater, FBI special agent in charge.

She said Republican vitriol and caricatures of her have resulted in "calls to my home constantly, threats in front of my family, really predicated on their comments and their paid ads".

"We are strongest when we are unified and when we work together for the common good", the president said. Leaders in Washington have called for solidarity following the shooting, with House Speaker Paul Ryan saying "an attack on one of us, is an attack on all of us", and declaring that Congress was united in its response to the attack.

The shooting happened shortly after 7 a.m. "It's been - he's in some trouble, but he is a great fighter and he is going to be okay, we hope", he said at a White House event.

"Everyone on that field is a public servant", the president said.

The gunman, who reportedly asked a bystander if Republicans were practicing on the field, fired away from behind a chain-link fence near the third-base dugout. DeSantis gave a similar account.

Shortly after the shooting, Bernie Sanders, the former candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, said on the Senate floor that the gunman was apparently a volunteer for his campaign a year ago.

"I don't know how you can accomplish this job without the personal interaction", Newhouse said in a phone interview from his Washington, D.C., office.

Giffords is the former Democratic congresswoman from Arizona who was shot in 2011, igniting concerns about a violent political atmosphere.

"We had nothing but baseball bats to fight back against a rifle with", Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks said.

"He was in the outfield", Williams said about Barth during a news conference on Wednesday.

"Many lives would have been lost, if not for the heroic actions of the two Capitol police officers who took down the gunman despite sustaining gunshot wounds during a very, very brutal assault", Mr. Trump said in remarks to the nation. Without the police there, Kinzinger said, "this would have been a massacre".
