Before shooting Republican congressman Steve Scalise and others at a ball park in Alexandria, Virginia on Wednesday morning, Representative Ron DeSantis said a man asked, "Are those Republicans or Democrats out there practicing?"

From Fox News Insider:
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) described a "very strange" encounter with a man shortly before House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was shot during a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.

Scalise was shot in the hip and some of his security team members were also reportedly wounded.

DeSantis said by phone that he and another congressman were leaving when a man asked them whether Republican or Democrat members of Congress were on the field.

"I was kind of a little odd," he said.

DeSantis said the man wasn't carrying anything at that time, but then a few minutes later, the shooting started.
Rand Paul said it would have been a massacre had police not been there:

Representative Mo Brooks said there must have been "50 to 100 shots fired":

Alexandria Police say the suspect is in custody:

Update: DeSantis confirmed the man who spoke to him was the shooter.
