Lauren Melzer, CBS News:

Dramatic video footage captured by a witness shows the moment a gunman opened fire during a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, injuring five, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise.

Gunfire erupts in the background of the video, which was obtained by the New York Post. A player is seen frantically running off of the field as two men ask aloud whether anyone has notified authorities of the incident.

Authorities say the gunman, 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson, carried a handgun and an assault rifle similar to an M-4. President Trump announced Hodgkinson died from his injuries.

Scalise, Capitol Police officers David Bailey and Krystal Griner, Matt Mika — a former congressional staffer who now works as a lobbyist for Tyson Foods — and Zachary Barth, a staffer for Rep. Roger Williams, were among the victims wounded in the shooting.
