House Democrats prayed after five people were transported to a hospital following a shooting at a Republican baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.

"Glad to see this. Too much anger and rhetoric," commented one Twitter user.

"A beautiful, poignant statement. Thank you for transcending politics in this moment," commented another.
