House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana was shot Wednesday at a congressional baseball practice, congressional officials say.

Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., said several other people also were hit, including two law enforcement officers.

The shooting suspect is in custody.

Brooks said that Scalise, 51, was down on the ground with what Brooks described as "a hip wound."

Scalise is the No. 3 House Republican leader.
