- Republican House majority whip among at least four shot
- Alexandria police say the suspect is believed to be in custody
Congressman Mo Brooks is giving a remarkable eyewitness interview on CNN.
Of the killer he said:
I don’t know if he was killed but I tell you I don’t have any kind thoughts about the shooter so let’s leave it at that.
He appeared to be a white male. But bear in mind I saw him for just a second or two, a fraction of a second.
You’re pretty helpless. It’s not a good situation to be in. I don’t know what took our security detail as long as it took them to start exchanging fire … It seemed like a long time but it might have been seconds … They exhibited tremendous bravery.
I got a glimpse of the shooter which meant he also could see me if he looked in my direction. At that point I ran around home plate.
