Watch moment gunfire erupted at the congressional baseball practice in Virgina (Graphic)

US House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and three other people were wounded Wednesday morning when a gunman opened fire on members of the Republican congressional baseball team as they were practicing on a field in Alexandria, Virginia. 

New reports say Scalise, 51, was in critical condition and was described as stable after emergency surgery.

The gunman, James T. Hodgkinson, 66, was shot by police and later died of his wounds.

Hodgkinson was a big hater of conservatives and President Donald Trump.

Reports based on reviews of Hodgkinson’s Facebook profiles, public records, and three years of impassioned letters to his local newspaper revealed this information.

On his Facebook page, he posted  on March 22; “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.” And then in February, “Republicans are the Taliban of the USA.”

Witnesses told investigators that when the gunman arrived at the ball field, he asked people: "Are these the Republicans or the Democrats?" 

An eyewitness captured the moment the gunman opened fire and the entire shootout.
