Rand Paul’s Dramatic First Hand Account Of The Shooting

Below is a first-hand account of this morning’s shooting in Washington D.C. from Senator Rand Paul who was on the scene enjoying some batting practice when the first shots rang out.  Paul recounts a chaotic scene in which Majority Whip Steve Scalise was shot while playing 2nd base and then crawled toward the outfield to get further away from the shooter who apparently took cover behind the 3rd base dugout. 

Paul, who couldn’t see the gunman from his position, said he believed the shooter fired 50-60 shots and he described the gun as sounding like an AR-15.

Paul credited the Capitol Police, who would not have been on site but for the presence of Scalise, for reacting swiftly to counteract an attack that could have been far worse.

“One of the things that’s really fortunate and probably why — everybody probably would have died expect for the fact that the Capitol Hill police were there,” he said.

Capitol Police were at the scene because of the presence of Scalise, the third-ranking Republican in GOP leadership.

“If Scalise wouldn’t have been on the team — unfortunately he was hit and I hope he does well — but also by him being there it probably saved everybody else’s life because if you don’t have a leadership person there, there would have been so security there,” Paul said.

“They do a great job. These are brave men and women and we were really lucky they were there,” he said.
