Rep. Ruben J. Kihun, R-NV, posted a photo after the shooting showing Democrats and Republicans huddled together in prayer.

"@HouseDemocrats praying for our @HouseGOP @SenateGOP baseball colleagues after hearing about the horrific shooting," Kihun tweeted.

Other government officials tweeted out their prayers, including President Donald Trump.

"Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, a true friend and patriot, was badly injured but will fully recover. Our thoughts and prayers are with him," the commander in chief tweeted.

"Karen & I are praying for @SteveScalise, the Capitol Police, & all hurt for a speedy recovery. Our hearts are with them & their loved ones," Vice President Mike Pence tweeted.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Rep @SteveScalise, Congressional staff, Capitol Police, & all those affected by today's horrific shooting," Democratic Governors tweeted.

Scalise is reportedly in stable condition. He is one of five shot during a Congressional baseball practice on Capitol Hill.
