WARNING: Video emerges from the moment Alexandria, VA gunman opened fire on GOP baseball team

The amount of shots fired was endless.

Video from the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, captured the chaos that ensued when a 66-year-old Bernie Sanders supporter opened fire on a Republican congressional baseball team.

According to law enforcement officials the shooter has been identified as 66-year-old, never-Trumper and Bernie supporter James Hodgkinson.

Hodgkinson allegedly asked Representative Jeff Duncan whether it was Republicans or Democrats on the practice field before opening fire.

WARNING: The video that follows may be disturbing.

The NY Post reports

More than 25 bullets can be heard ripping through the air in the footage, which was captured by witness Noah Nathan close to the field at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park.

At one point, a man can be seen lying in the middle of the field.

“Do we know where he’s at?” the man recording the video can be heard saying. “I assume people have been calling 911 already.”

The shooting continues for several minutes, with some pauses in between the gunfire. Toward the end of the video, several gunshots are fired in quick succession, as people shout in the background.

The footage then shows several people crowd around the player on the field.

Nathan told The Post he lives in the neighborhood and was at the dog park next to the baseball field when James Hodgkinson opened fire. He added that he was more “pissed off than scared” during the attack.

Nathan added that he was aware GOP lawmakers were out practicing, since they’d been preparing for their game “most mornings.”
