Maloney Statement on Shooting at Congressional Baseball Practice
Washington — Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) released the following statement after a gunman opened fire at Republican Congressional Baseball practice this morning.
“I’m praying for my colleague Steve Scalise, the two Capitol Police officers, and the staff member who were shot this morning. I am so grateful for our brave Capitol Police officers and first responders who were on the scene and acted quickly – they literally saved lives.
“The Congressional Baseball game is a time-honored tradition in the spirit of charity and bipartisanship – we must honor that tradition. Today is a good reminder that while we can get caught up in labels and parties, what ultimately matters is that we are all people and we are all Americans.”
