BRYAN, Texas - Our own congressman for our district, Bill Flores, was one of the first to take to twitter to announce he was safe after today's shooting.

Flores was not at the ball park but he told us he represents more than 700,000 people and wanted everyone to know he was okay.

Several congressmen have stated that hopefully this incident would be a wake up call for gun control, Flores says guns are not the problem.

"Gun control is not the issue, we have to dial back the level of hostile rhetoric that has been occurring since the November elections, and that's what we have to do we need to start treating each other with mutual respect instead of what I see in the public domain these days," Flores said.

Flores also mentioned mental health is more important to help than gun control.
