Houstonian, victim of Alexandria shooting released from hospital

On Wednesday, University of Texas at Austin President Greg Fenves wished Zack Barth a speedy recovery.

A disturbed gunman opened fire on Republican lawmakers on Wednesday as they practiced for the Congressional Baseball Game in Virginia, injuring House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and three others.

"There will be those who will talk about what's wrong with America, but in this case, Officers [Crystal] Griner and [David] Bailey, we saw what's right with America", Williams said at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon, calling the Capitol Police officers "heroes".

Republican Congressman Roger Williams subsequently confirmed that Zack Barth is the staffer of his who was shot today; Barth is a legislative correspondent in Williams' office.

Two Capitol Police officers, identified as special agents David Bailey and Crystal Griner, were wounded while protecting Scalise. Barton said Williams also aimed to protect other teammates in the dugout as well as Barton's young son.

Williams said the treatment he received at the hospital will allow him to coach the game but then "I'll be going back to Texas after the game tomorrow night to let my doctor see what he needs to do about my ankle, leg and feet".

"Congressman Williams was not shot, however a member of his staff was shot and is receiving medical attention", a statement posted to Williams' Twitter account read in part. Roger Williams - a fellow Texan - offered Brady the chance to take some grounders at second base as the team's back up.

Since 1909, teams comprised of members of Congress from both parties have squared off to raise money for charity - and this year's game is scheduled to go forward as planned Thursday at Nationals Park in Washington. "(Rep.) Jeff Flake took his belt off and made a tourniquet around Zach's leg to stop the bleeding.

Williams is the representative from District 25 that stretches from Austin to Fort Worth. They saved all of our lives.

The last woman to win her first tour-level title at a major was Barbara Jordan at the 1979 Australian Open. Halep added: "She only has one game, either I can't touch it or it flies one metre out".

"A lot of us thought it might have been a vehicle backfiring", Williams said. The lobbyist also was reported to be in good condition. "We didn't get to keep him very long".

Barth grew up in Houston and his family still lives here in Briarforest. He said two of his children were with him at the ballpark when the shooting started. "I'm ... thankful to God for keeping us safe with the bravery of these Capitol Police".

Neugebauer said he texted with Barth Wednesday morning and that Barth had said he was, "going to be OK".

The Thursday game is expected to take place as expected.
