USA congressman Scalise still in critical condition: Hospital

USA congressman Scalise still in critical condition: Hospital

Scalise was the most seriously injured of the four people Hodgkinson shot Wednesday morning. Witnesses at the baseball field said Hodgkinson asked a local resident about the party affiliation of the congressmen; a few moments after he learned they were Republicans, he produced a semiautomatic rifle and began firing volleys of shots.

It emerged Hodgkinson had a social media page filled with criticism of Republicans and the Trump administration. He died after officers in Scalise's security detail fired back at him. This person was not authorized to speak publicly about the case and spoke on condition of anonymity.

A statement released by the MedStar Washington Hospital Center said Scalise's condition had been upgraded, and that he was now listed as serious, rather than critical.

Before the event, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters, "Tonight we will go to the game, play our hardest, but we will all be Team Scalise".

Scalise has remained under sedation, although doctors have lightened the medication at times so that the congressman can communicate with relatives.

"I was there last night", he said. Scalise was hit as a gunman sprayed bullets into a GOP congressional baseball practice outside Washington D.C.

Scalise "sustained a single rifle wound that entered in the area of the left hip", Sava said, adding that the round fragmented and did "substantial damage to bones, internal organs and blood vessels". He is the House's No. 3 GOP leader.

Jennifer Scalise also is thanking the first responders who rushed to her husband's aid Wednesday and the staff at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, where her husband remains in critical condition. "He's going to be OK".

On Wednesday morning, a Trump-hating Bernie Sanders volunteer shot five people at a Republican practice for the annual congressional baseball game. Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and critically injured and remained hospitalized.

The Democrats' bats overpowered the Republicans, 11-2, to broke the 39-39 series tie.

Richmond is the Democrats' star pitcher, and a close friend of Scalise's. "But you have long since earned my respect, and you deserve to be heard, and you are an honorable individual". Both had appeared on the House floor earlier Thursday.

Lucee Laursen of La Crosse, Wisconsin, interning in the capital for a nonprofit, said, "It's showing that we might have differences in political spheres but we come together for a good cause". It's a sentiment lawmakers frequently express after mass shootings or terrorist attacks, only to see their sharp oratorical elbows gradually return.

But Flake said the final score wasn't likely to matter this year. They, like so many other courageous police officers, represent the very best of us.
