Congressional baseball game goes on following Alexandria shooting; DOJ investigating McLean-based Booz Allen Hamilton

Northern Virginia’s daily dose of local and national news for Friday, June 16.

The congressional baseball game took place at Nationals Park in D.C. following the Alexandria shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise Wednesday. The Democrats won but gave the trophy to the Republicans to give to Scalise, who remains in critical condition. The shooter, who was shot and killed by police, was living in a van in Northern Virginia in the months prior to the attack and reportedly went on a profane rant against President Donald Trump at an Alexandria auto repair garage.
