Two Kansas lawmakers say they are okay after reports of a shooting at a congressional baseball practice outside Washington, D.C., Wednesday morning. NPR reports Louisiana Republican Representative Steve Scalise, one of his aides, and two Capitol Police were injured in the shooting. Representative Kevin Yoder of Johnson County and Representative Roger Marshall of the 1st district in western Kansas are both on the roster for the GOP's team, which was preparing for a charity game. A Yoder spokesperson tells KCUR Radio in Kansas City that the congressman was not at the practice Wednesday. Marshall tweeted early Wednesday that he was alright. Other Kansas congressmembers responded to the shooting on Twitter as well. Neither Representative Lynn Jenkins nor Representative Ron Estes appeared to be at the practice.
Katie Bernard, a news intern at KCUR in Kansas City, compiled this report.
