Five people including the House Majority Whip Steve Scalise were shot at a GOP baseball practice on Wednesday morning.
The gunman opened fire from the third base dugout at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria, Virginia, as the group practiced batting at around 7am.
He fired between 50 and 100 rounds before being shot by Capitol Police who were accompanying Scalise. The shooter is now in custody and being treated at a local hospital.
A congressional staffer and two Capitol Police officers were shot. Senator Rand Paul, who was at the scene but was not injured, said it was a ‘killing field’.
The shooter asked the group if they were Republicans or Democrats before opening fire from the third base dugout as the men practiced batting.
The group was practicing for a charity match which is due to take place on Thursday at Nationals Park.

We love inventions that solve problems or help make life easier. When an invention does both, that’s awesome, and if it happens to be incredibly simple, then it doesn’t get much better than that. The video below is of one such invention, and since it is designed to help some of our local heroes do their jobs better, we just had to share it!
What you’re looking at is the Wind-X, a special attachment for a cordless drill that works in conjunction with the disk and bearing on the ground to reel up a firehose in a matter of seconds. This task hardly takes hours to do by hand, but it does take much longer than what the Wind-X make possible. Depending on where it’s placed on the hose, the Wind-X can roll the hose up in a double roll, where it can be pulled from both ends, or rolled into a single roll that pulls out while the roll itself stays put.
With the use of a Rope, and an old rim, these guys make the job of tearing out an old and unsightly fence post completely easy!

Tricks like this always make you wonder how many tries it took to get right.
We’d like to think he nailed it in one.
It’s not enough that he crushes the trick, but he does it while crossing the gap on a plank of wood!
Check out his smooth flip in the video below.
Could you pull this off?
It used to be much harder for people to notice that you are good at something in the past.
Nowadays, due to the emergence of the Internet, we have access to a global platform where pretty much everyone and everything can be seen! Many people have used the Internet to become famous and renowned throughout the world.
Today, we are sharing an interesting video that has become quite popular because of two reasons. First, a good looking biker girl is the star of the video. Second and more important is the position of the camera itself, which is probably the main reason why this video got popular.
If you are wondering how the camera angle can affect the popularity of a video, allow us to explain. In this video, the camera is placed right behind this adorable girl! Furthermore, she has a voluptuous body which makes the view way better! Also, we mustn`t forget that she is a formidable biker as well. She is accelerating greatly without any hesitation at all! However, it doesn`t appear like she is wearing any protective gear, and we have to criticize her about that decision. Nonetheless, we are certain that you will greatly enjoy this video. Watch the good looking biker girl in the video below!
Get ready to meet a group of incredible leather-clad superheroes. Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) is a non-profit organization that works to create a safer environment for abused children and their families.
For years, Karen and her young daughter were abused by her husband. Sick of living in fear, Karen found help from an unlikely source — 15 guardian angels united with the motto, “No child deserves to live in fear.” Now, Karen and her daughter are safe with 24/7 support and protection.
What touched me most about the video below is when one of the BACA members says, “If a child has problems sleeping or afraid to get on the bus or go to school, we’re there.” That’s right — these rough-and-tough bikers will pick a child up from the bus and even camp out in front of his or her home until the child feels safe. Many of the bikers experienced abuse in their own lives, so they know firsthand the impact of abuse.
It’s amazing to see an organization that completely disproves stereotypes, and teaches us never to judge a book by its cover.
The boating motorist in this Trailblazer is hell-bent on getting his patriotic boat to the water on this gorgeous blue-sky day and has rigged up what appears to be a small platform to hold his boat nearly vertically behind his SUV. The platform is low to the ground and between the weight of the boat and the wind forcing it downward so far that it scrapes the ground, sending a screech that can easily be heard by the other drivers, who decided to grab a quick video.
Hopefully the platform survived the trip to the lake and this guy got his fix on the water, because going to all this trouble to go and not have fun would really be a waste of effort and some solid redneck engineering. If y’all see anything like this out there and can SAFELY grab a video, send it our way. We love seeing how creative people get when it comes to hauling their stuff!
When you are ready to head out on the water, boating might seem like a pretty simple and straightforward process but the reality is that there are a lot more complications and things that you have to pay attention to than you might have imagined. This is why they have entire courses designed to teach you how to safely operate a watercraft.
While the scenes in this video might seem a little bit few and far between, the truth is that situations like this are a lot more common than you might have imagined as people head out of the water with absolutely no idea what they’re doing and that’s when things end up getting bad.
Now, some of these incidents might have been purely bad luck but others definitely stem from people getting a little bit ahead of themselves as far as what they’re trying to do versus how much skill they actually have to do it. Some of the situations end up getting a little bit ugly to say the least!
