“So the heroes are the Capitol Hill police, the Alexandria police, and Steve Scalise’s detail,” Barton told reporters.
Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) gave his firsthand account of the tragic shooting that occurred on Wednesday morning in Alexandria, VA during congressional Republicans’ baseball practice, and said the police involved in the shooting saved a lot of lives.
“They shot the shooter, and I think the security detail saved a lot of lives because they attacked the shooter. So the heroes are the Capitol Hill police, the Alexandria P=police, and Steve Scalise’s detail,” Barton told reporters.
Barton is the manager of the Congressional Republican baseball team and had both of his sons at Wednesday’s practice, both of who are fine.
When asked by reporters how long the gunfight lasted, Barton responded, “five to ten minutes, there were dozens if not hundreds of shots fired. It was scary.”
