***BREAKING NEWS***

Crisis: June 14

There was a shooting at the GOP baseball practice for a charity game of Democrats vs Republicans. Congressmen were shot, and one in particular, Steve Scalise, is fighting for his life. The gunman, a 66 year old identified as James Hodgkinson, from Belleville,  Illinois, had fired as many as 50 bullets, reports say. Hodgkinson was killed in a shootout, but not until he had shot 5, including Scalise. The congressman is fighting for his life.  Today, he underwent 3 surgeries and he may need more.  Harboring anger towards the Trump administration, Hodgkinson intended to kill as many people as he could.
Neighbors of the gunman said that lately he was behaving very strangely, even firing rifles across fields in the direction of houses. Meanwhile, Trump says that Scalise was in critical condition last he saw him, but said he was a fighter. “He’ll be OK, we hope” Trump said.
