BATON ROUGE: Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards released the following statement on the shooting in Alexandria, VA that injured Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise:

“This appears to be an outrageous, cowardly attack on one of our own. Steve Scalise is a friend, colleague and fighter for the people of Louisiana. While details continue to unfold, I want to thank the Capitol Police, all the first responders and other members of Congress for their quick and heroic efforts. Reports indicate they took swift action to take down this madman and render aid.
