Congressional shooting

On Wednesday morning (14/6/17) five total individuals were shot by James Hodgkinson, a left wing radical who acquired a gun and proceeded to open fire during the congressional baseball game held in Alexandria, Washington D.C. Currently no one other than the shooter is dead, though all are currently in hospital and some are in critical condition. I am unaware of the extent of said wounds at this time.

Due to what information has been found in regards to Hodgkinson, it can be surmised this was a politically inspired attack, based off rhetoric the man spouted on his Facebook page, and is seemingly in response to the President. There is no excuse, there is no justification for this act.

I wish the victims a swift and saferecovery.
