The House majority whip was injured in a shootout, that one representative said consisted of between 50 and 100 bullets being fired, in Alexandra, VA on Wednesday.
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) called into CNN’s “New Day” on Wednesday, almost immediately after a gunman opened fire on the Republican congressional baseball team’s practice in Alexandria, VA.
According to Brooks, the gunman used a semiautomatic relief, and five people were wounded, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), in the shootout that followed between Capitol Police and the gunman.
Brooks estimates that between 50 and 100 bullets were fired before the gunman was taken down. During the shootout, Brooks helped provide aid to an unidentified Congressional staffer that was shot in the leg.
