As news broke Wednesday morning of multiple people being shot at a congressional baseball team practice, members of Nebraska's congressional delegation expressed their concern.

In a tweet, Sen. Deb Fischer said she was praying for House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and the others injured in a shooting on a baseball field in a park in Alexandria, Virginia.

First year Rep. Don Bacon said on social media that all members of the Nebraska delegation were safe.

Said Congressman Jeff Fortenberry on Twitter: "

I'm shocked, I'm grieved, I'm numb about the shooting of my friend Steve Scalise."

It's unclear if any members of the Nebraska delegation were at the practice for Republican members of the baseball team preparing for Thursday night's scheduled game for charity.
