A total of five people, including Scalise and the gunman, were injured in the shooting, according to multiple reports. The audio recording, with portions trimmed of dead air, runs for about 10 minutes.

The shooter, identified as a 66-year-old IL man who had vented at Republicans on social media, fired repeatedly at the baseball field in suburban Alexandria, Virginia.

Scalise underwent surgery for his injuries, according to his official Facebook page, and is now listed in stable condition. Scalise's office announced Wednesday morning that he was "in good spirits" and "stable condition".
