Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement after the shooting this morning at the Republican Congressional Baseball Practice in Alexandria, Virginia:


“We stand in solidarity with our Republican colleagues, and commend Speaker Ryan for convening the House along with Leader Pelosi, to unify the body after this senseless violence. My prayers are with my colleagues, their staff, and the brave men and women of the Capitol Police and Alexandria Police who answered the selfless call to defend and save the lives of my colleagues. My thoughts are with the injured for a speedy recovery, and with their families. We will continue to condemn senseless acts of violence of any kind,” said Larson.
