I was about 20 yards from the shooter. We were taking batting practice. I was the short stop, Scalise was at second and Trent Kelly was at third. I heard a gunshot and I yelled to Trent, “that’s a gunshot” — I think the guy’s initial shot, he was trying to hit Trent and missed him. Trent yelled, “shooter,” and we all broke for the first base side of the field to get off the field and he fired two more times and I saw Scalise go down.
