WASHINGTON – Congressman Lou Barletta (PA-11) today released the following statement in response to the shooting at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, VA:

“This is the first year since I’ve been a member of Congress that I am not playing in the Congressional Baseball Game. While I am safe, I am sickened by this morning’s horrific shooting.
