Ten years ago today, a freshman at Cleveland’s SuccessTech Academy shot two students and two teachers before turning a gun on himself.

 

The incident drew national attention and pushed the Cleveland Metropolitan School District to increase security in its more than 100 schools.

 

National and local leaders are voicing their support for the victims of a shooting that took place during baseball practice among members of Congress and staff in Alexandria, Virginia this morning. 

When shots were fired in the early morning in Alexandria, Virginia it was Republican Representative Brad Wenstrup of Cincinnati who reportedly jumped to action to help the victims, which included fellow Republican House Member Steve Scalise.

Wenstrup, a doctor and an Iraqi war veteran, said the baseball field felt like a combat zone.
