"Eerie Feeling" Keeps Congressman Out of Danger

KSAL StaffJune 14, 2017

An “eerie feeling” that he can’t explain might have kept a Kansas congressman out of harm’s way Wednesday morning at an Alexandria, Virginia ballfield during a practice for the annual congressional benefit baseball game.

First District Congressman Dr. Roger Marshall was not in the area during a shooting incident Wednesday morning in which legislators on the baseball team he plays with were targeted by a gunman.

Marshall says that he plays on the team, and rarely misses a practice. He told KSAL News, though that he wasn’t at the practice Wednesday morning in which a gunman showed up with a rifle and started shooting.


Authorities say that James Hodgkinson showed up at the practice with a rifle, and started firing. He was shot by police and died at a hospital.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was in critical condition after surgery for gunshot wounds. The Louisiana Republican and four others, including two Capitol Police officers, were shot.
