The Hill has obtained video from a home near where the Congressional Baseball Game practice shooting took place Wednesday morning.

The audio and video above captures rounds of loud gunshots echoing through the neighborhood for more than a minute. Dozens of gunshots can be heard.

According to The Hill:

As many as 30 gun shots can be heard in the recording, which was taken from a house not far from the field where GOP lawmakers and aides were practicing. It is unclear how many of the shots were fired by a gunman and how many were fired by police. The footage does not show any video of the shooting.

Tryshah Taylor, the woman who recorded the video from her back porch, began recording shortly after the firing began.

Taylor lives less than a block from the practice field where the shooting took place.

A shooter opened fire on the GOP's practice Wednesday morning, injuring five people, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA)

The alleged shooter, identified as James T. Hodgkinson, was reportedly armed with a rifle and began firing shots at unarmed members of Congress, who were “sitting ducks,” according to Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).

Speaking with Fox News, Paul recounted the harrowing action of Scalise's armed security force to prevent a “massacre.”
