Rep. Scalise 'better' but still in 'critical condition,' says hospital

Rep. Scalise 'better' but still in 'critical condition,' says hospital

According to Sava, Scalise arrived at the hospital Wednesday in "critical condition with an imminent risk of death" after taking a gunshot to the hip during a GOP baseball practice.

The opposing sides are paying tribute to Rep. Steve Scalise, the House majority whip who was critically wounded when a gunman opened fire at a Republican baseball practice in Virginia on Wednesday.

Others shot were Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner, who was shot in the ankle; and Matt Mika, a Tyson Foods lobbyist, who is in intensive care at George Washington University Hospital after being shot in the chest.

Numerous players in the congressional game Thursday night were wearing Louisiana State University hats in honor of Scalise, a graduate of the school, as they assemble at Nationals Park in Washington.

The Capitol Police Memorial Fund was added to the list of charities that will receive money raised by the game in honor of two members of Scalise's security detail who were at the Wednesday practice session and returned fire.

Rep. Jack Bergman, R-Mich., a retired Army general, said, the shooter was kept off the field by a chain-link fence, which was locked.

Zac Lowther, LHP (#74): Lowther is viewed as one of the most low-risk, productive college hurlers in the draft this year. Hargrove also ended the year with 18-straight games reaching base safely, beginning on the April 26 game at New Mexico.

Mr Scalise, 51, a Louisiana Republican who is the No 3 House Republican, remained in critical condition at a hospital a few miles from the stadium after undergoing a third surgery on Thursday.

Republican congressman Steve Scalise is "in some trouble" after being shot at a baseball field but "he's going to be okay, we hope", Donald Trump said.

The FBI has not speculated on a motive for the attack on the Republicans' pratice, though Hodgkinson's social media shows a visceral hatred for all things GOP.

If you're curious who won the game, it was the Democrats who scored the most runs, but they gave the trophy to the Republicans so it can sit in Steve Scalise's office.

"It's been much more hard than people even thought at the time", Trump said.

The statement was read aloud at a press conference by Brett Horton, Scalise's chief of staff. Scalise was visited in the hospital Wednesday by President Trump and Thursday by Vice President Pence. Trump released a statement saying: "Our thoughts and prayers are with all affected".
