Jun 14, 2017

Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Ryan this morning released the following statement in response to the shooting this morning at the Congressional Republican baseball practice:

“I was sickened to hear news of the shooting this morning at the Republican practice for the Congressional Baseball game. My thoughts and prayers are with Congressman Steve Scalise and the Capitol Police Officers and congressional staffer who were injured by this morning’s senseless act of violence. I’m especially grateful to the U.S. Capitol Police and Alexandria Virginia Police Department who by all accounts acted as heroes and prevented this incident from turning even worse. Today’s incident was appalling to all who believe in our democratic values. I wish all those impacted a speedy recovery,” said Congressman Ryan.
