Rep. Roger Williams: A Lot of Heroes Today Among My Friends

The Latest: Congressman says member of his staff wounded

Williams tweeted that Barth is doing well and is expected to make a full recovery.

Barth, a congressional staffer for Texas Rep. Roger Williams, was identified as one of the five people hit by gunfire this morning during the practice, Williams confirmed via social media.

Shots rang out during a baseball practice Wednesday for Republican congressmen in Alexandria, Virginia.

Hodgkinson was fatally shot by police.

CVS was fighting to enforce a provision in that deal barring those stores from reopening pharmacies for five years. Fresh Encounters bid $8 million on four locations in OH and 11 others around central Indiana.

He said it was an ankle, leg injury that occurred while he was diving into the dugout and he'd "be going back to Texas after the game tomorrow night to let my doctors see what they need to do as far as my knee and my leg". In another tweet, he wrote: "We ask that you please respect the privacy of him and his family during this hard time".

Zachary Barth, a staffer for GOP Rep. Roger Williams of TX, posted on FB that he was shot but is "okay".

"I heard the first shot and I wasn't sure, I thought maybe it was the backfiring of a auto", Williams said, "but then the second and the third and everybody yelled, 'he's got a gun, run for cover.' So that's what I did".

The shooting unfolded just a day before the Republican congressional baseball team will face off against their Democratic colleagues in a game played for charity - a yearslong bipartisan tradition which will go on, both sides affirmed in the shooting's aftermath.

He also called the system "ancient, broken, antiquated" and "horrible" and said his reforms would make it safer and more reliable. He would also transfer responsibility for a $36 billion air traffic modernization program at the FAA to a new private entity.

In addition to working as an intern for then Houston Mayor Pro-Tem and now Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez in 2013, he also interned for U.S. District Judge Gray H. Miller the very next year. "I held him and he held me", Williams said.

"There was a lot of heroes today among my friends", he emphasized. "Some of us were on the ground", Barton said.

"They saved everybody's life", Williams said of Griner and Bailey.

"When I got into the dugout, it wasn't 10 seconds that Zack had come running in from the outfield and ... we landed in each other's arms", Williams said, describing the chaotic scene.

La Decima - The Story: Rafael Nadal reflects on first-round win
The Open era, when the Grand Slam tournaments allowed professional players to compete with amateurs, began in 1968. Will additional Roland Garros titles matter from this point on? And Roger's lost once, he's spread out his year.

"The Alexandria Police along with the Capital Police secured a cease-fire, capturing the suspect", Barton said.
