The shots were reported on East Monroe Street in Del Ray, Alexandria police said on Twitter at 7.30 am. The suspect, identified as James T. Hodgkinson, 66, from IL, used a M4 assault carbine during the attack, CBS News also confirmed.

"The assailant has now died from his injuries", Trump announced from the White House.

A total of five people, including Scalise and the gunman, were injured in the shooting, according to multiple reports. The 51-year-old Republican from Louisianna was taken to George Washington University Hospital where he underwent surgery and is now listed as stable.

Scalise is stable and is expected to make a full recovery. Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it was too early to determine a motive in the shooting or whether the attack was an attempted political assassination. During a break in the gunfire, he said he ran for cover and went to render help to those injured.

"The gun was a semiautomatic", Brooks said.
