According to multiple reports, a gunman opened fire at a GOP charity baseball team practice early Wednesday morning in Virginia.
Three Michigan congressmen were present and have all been reported safe, according to WDIV. Reps. Mike Bishop (8th District), Jack Bergman (1st District), and John Moolenar (4th District) were all in attendance.
Rep. Mike Bishop tweeted out to his followers this morning that a "lone gunman" was opening fire on members of Congress and several people were down on the ground.

Rep. Jack Bergman also tweeted this morning that he was safe.
I was on scene, but I'm blessed to be safe, and I want to thank the security forces who were so quick to respond. They're the heroes here.— Rep. Jack Bergman (@RepJackBergman) June 14, 2017
We're learning more about motive, but this is a good time to reflect on division and unity. We're all human. We're more the same than not.— Rep. Jack Bergman (@RepJackBergman) June 14, 2017
This morning, Rep. Moolenaar attended baseball practice. He was uninjured in the shooting. Please keep those injured in your prayers.— Rep. John Moolenaar (@RepMoolenaar) June 14, 2017
Rep. Dan Kildee (5th District) was also at a baseball practice this morning, but on a different field.
At baseball practice on another field when we learned of this terrible news. Praying for @SteveScalise, staff & Capitol Police who are shot. https://t.co/gjAnaJr0nL— Rep. Dan Kildee (@RepDanKildee) June 14, 2017
