Two Kansas lawmakers say they are okay after reports of a shooting at a Congressional baseball practice outside Washington, D.C., Wednesday morning.
NPR reports Rep. Steve Scalise, Republican from Louisiana, one of his aides, and two Capitol Police were injured in the shooting.
Rep. Kevin Yoder of Johnson County and Rep. Roger Marshall of the state's "Big First" in western Kansas are both on the roster for the GOP's team, which has been preparing for a charity game.
A Yoder spokesperson tells KCUR the Congressman was not at the practice Wednesday.
Congressman Marshall tweeted early Wednesday that he was alright.
I am alright. Please pray with me this morning.
