A shocking new video has just been released by the New York Post which reveals the exact moment that the "progressive," never-Trumper James Hodgkinson opened fire on the GOP's baseball practice in Alexandria, VA. As we noted earlier this morning, the shooting left Majority Whip Steve Scalise and 4 others hospitalized with gunshot wounds.
The video was taken by someone enjoying a stroll in the park when shooting broke out. As many as 25 gun shots can be heard in the recording though it's unclear how many of the shots were fired by the gunman and how many were fired by police. In the end of the video you can see people huddling around someone, presumably Scalise, in the outfield just beyond the 2nd base position. Per the New York Post:
More than 25 bullets can be heard ripping through the air in the footage, which was captured by a witness close to the field at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park.
At one point, a man can be seen lying in the middle of the field.
“Do we know where he’s at?” the man recording the video can be heard saying. “I assume people have been calling 911 already.”
The shooting continues for several minutes, with some pauses in between the gunfire. Toward the end of the video, several gunshots are fired in quick succession, as people shout in the background.
The footage then shows several people crowd around the player on the field.
As we noted earlier, the shooter has been identified as 66-year-old, never-Trumper and Bernie Sanders supporter James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois. Hodgkinson has since died from gunshot wounds he incurred during a shootout with police.
