Thankfully it sounds like House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La) and the other intended victims who were shot, will be okay. But why did the shooter do as he did? What was the motivation?
Allegedly he asked who was playing baseball (Democrats or Republicans) just before the shooting. Then again, it was a mixed field of Republicans and Democrats. Update: While someone did ask who was playing, apparently it was not the shooter. There were also only Republicans practicing.
The shooter was reportedly shot and killed by Scalise's own security team.
