Congressman says member of his staff wounded

Shortly afterwards, Zachary Barth, a legislative aide in Williams' office, also jumped into the dugout, after being shot in the leg.

Williams, who has been playing on the Republicans' congressional baseball team for a decade, witnessed the shooting, but was not shot himself, although he sustained injuries while attempting to escape the shooter, 66-year-old James Hodgkinson.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise from Louisiana was among the five people shot.

Texas Congressmen who play in the game include Republicans Joe Barton, Kevin Brady, Mike Conaway and Roger Williams, as well as Democrat Marc Veasey.

Foreign minister Boris Johnson, who was reported by British media to be lining up a leadership bid, insisted May should stay. In a hard atmosphere for the Prime Minister, May instead chose to acknowledge the diversity of the newly elected parliament.

"When I got into the dugout, it wasn't 10 seconds that Zack had come running in from the outfield and ... we landed in each other's arms", Williams said, describing the chaotic scene.

In an interview on the situation, Rep. Williams said Barth never stopped texting his colleagues to share updates and information on the situation, even after he was hit and bleeding.

The congressman said he was hitting ground balls to Scalise when the shots began, "The first one (ground ball) I hit him, the shots went off".

"This could have easily been 25 deaths or more today", said Williams, who has represented Burnet County in Congress since 2013.

"I just want to thank the security detail because they saved our lives", Barton said.

"Jeff Flake took his belt off and made a tourniquet around Zack's leg to stop the bleeding", Williams added.

"There were dozens, if not hundreds, of shots fired", Barton said. "This is America the greatest country in the world, if you punch us we will punch back and we're going to play baseball tomorrow". The game was scheduled to be played at Nats Stadium Thursday.

"I don't think it was a Republican or Democratic issue, but I think he had an issue", Williams said.
