USA lawmaker Scalise status remains critical after baseball field shooting

USA lawmaker Scalise status remains critical after baseball field shooting

He added that Scalise would be in the hospital "for some time" and would need "a period of healing and rehabilitation" after being discharged.

She said she was married to James Hodgkinson for almost 30 years but they have not been together since March, when he moved to Washington, D.C. Scalise sustained a gunshot wound to the hip that broke bones, caused damage to internal organs and caused severe bleeding.

Rep. Steve Scalise was shot June 14, 2017 in Alexandria, Virginia, a House colleague told CNN, in what sources are calling an apparent "deliberate attack". Why hasn't the Democratic Party's leadership spoken out against the increased violence against police officers and on college campuses?

However, according to Dr. Jack Sava, Rep. Scalise's condition has improved slightly. The gunman was shot and killed at the scene after police returned fire.

"Most importantly, we are forever grateful for the heroism of Special Agents Crystal Griner and David Bailey, who saved the lives of everyone at the baseball field that morning, including Steve's", Scalise's wife, Jennifer, said in the statement.

The man who opened fire on Republican lawmakers in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday was carrying a handwritten list of House Republicans' names, NBC News' Pete Williams reports.

In a show of bipartisanship, Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan said on the floor of the House: "An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us".

Pakistan had collapsed to 162 for seven chasing 237 against Sri Lanka but, two days on, there was no repeat of that batting slump. Pakistan , as they had when defeating England in an ODI at Cardiff past year , received plenty of crowd support.

Scalise suffered the most serious wounds among several people hit by bullets Wednesday. She remains in the hospital, is in good condition and is in good spirits, he said.

President Donald Trump says GOP Congressman Steve Scalise "took a bullet for all of us".

Mark Kern, the former mayor of Belleville, Illinois, told ABC News Wednesday that Hodgkinson was sacked from a county contract to remove lead from community buildings in 2003 after he was found rummaging through desks, looking for a check.

Investigators now confirm the gunman who shot at Congressman Steve Scalise and three others, including Congressional staff and Capitol Police Officers, was carrying a list of names, which included congressmen.

The gunman, who had a history of posting angry messages against Trump and other Republicans on social media, died after being wounded by police.

"In Washington we have our disagreements, but we all agree that we are here to serve this nation we love and the people who call it home", Trump said.
