NC’s congressional delegation offers prayers, praise following shooting at congressional baseball practice

Members of North Carolina’s congressional delegation took to social media Wednesday to offer prayers and praise for law enforcement, hours after a gunman opened fire at a congressional baseball practice just outside of Washington, D.C.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana was listed in critical condition after being shot in the hip by the assailant. A legislative aide for Texas Congressman Roger Williams also sustained injuries.

Two Capitol Police officers were hurt trying to stop the attack. Their injuries were  described as not life-threatening.

The shooter, 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson of Illinois, was killed in the exchange of gunfire.

Below are just a few of the comments from the state’s congressional delegation:
