The Hill has just released shocking audio of this morning’s shooting in Alexandria, VA that left Majority Whip Steve Scalise and 4 others hospitalized with gunshot wounds incurred while practicing for a charity baseball game.
The audio was taken by a resident who lived just a block away from the park where the shooting occurred. As many as 30 gun shots can be heard in the recording though it’s unclear how many of the shots were fired by the gunman and how many were fired by police. Per The Hill:
The Hill has obtained audio of dozens of gun shots at the GOP baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.
Tryshah Taylor, the woman who recorded the video from her back porch, began recording shortly after the firing began.
Taylor lives less than a block from the practice field where the shooting took place.
As we noted earlier, the shooter has been identified as 66-year-old, never-Trumper and Bernie Sanders supporter James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois. Hodgkinson has since died from gunshot wounds he incurred during a shootout with police.
