Rand Paul says he heard 50 to 60 shots

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky talked to MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” today, and told them he heard 50 or 60 shots.

He said he could see the shooter “way in the distance.”

“Everyone probably would have died” without the presence of Capitol Police, who ere there because Scalise is a member of leadership. “By him [Scalise] being there, he probably saved everyone else’s life.”

He continued about Capitol Police: “Had they not been there, it would have been a massacre. … We had no weapons and no place to hide.”
