A member of Rep. Roger Williams' staff was among the injured when a gunman opened fire Wednesday morning during a congressional team baseball practice.

In Neugebauer's office, he was a policy assistant and staff assistant, according to Legistorm.

The staff member, Zack Barth, posted on Facebook that he was shot and is at the hospital but is "okay". According to President Donald Trump in an address from the White House, the suspect has died.

Roger Williams (R-Tex.) wrote that Zack Barth, a legislative correspondent in his office, was wounded in the shooting. U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise was among those shot, according to multiple media reports. Capitol police officers returned fire in an exchange that lasted around 10 minutes.

The meeting came weeks after the Indian leader refused to dispatch a delegation to attend "One Belt, One Road" summit in Beijing . Putin said it is "important" for the member states to help new comers to "quickly and efficiently" get used to the organization.

FOX News says along with Scalise and the aide to Williams, two Capitol Police officers were also shot as well as the gunman.

A person reportedly asked someone if the congressmen playing on the field in Alexandria were Republicans or Democrats before the attack.

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. "This is a game going on for over 100 years, it goes to charity and we need to play this baseball game and so I'm excited that we've made a decision to do that". Since then, 79 games have been played, with Democrats and Republicans boasting a tie record of 39 wins, 29 losses, and 1 tie. "That is something that we all need to work on". The game was scheduled to be played at Nats Stadium Thursday.

During its century-long run, the Congressional Baseball Game has evolved into a fundraiser for DC area charities including The Washington Literacy Center, The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington, and the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation.
