Shot congressman facing 'much more difficult' recover than first thought

Shot congressman facing 'much more difficult' recover than first thought”

As for Scalise, he's still in critical condition, but he's improving.

"So we all owe Steve a big, big thank you", Trump added.

Dr. Ira Rabin (L) escorts US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump from MedStar Washington Hospital Center, June 14, 2017. The bullet caused massive bleeding, and damaged bones and internal organs.

The shooting occurred at a popular park and baseball complex in Alexandria, Virginia, across the Potomac River from Washington, where Republican lawmakers and others were gathered for a morning practice about 7 a.m.

The shooter fired repeatedly with a rifle at the baseball field in Alexandria before being wounded in a gunfight with Capitol Hill police who were at the scene, lawmakers said.

"Not here, but in our thoughts and prayers, Steve Scalise", said the announcer before the game.

Griner remained in the hospital in good condition after sustaining a gunshot wound to the ankle, according to a Friday update.

Proceedings were canceled for the day in the House, and instead Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California issued their own calls for unity.

And even as the fans rose as one to cheer Scalise's name and the Capitol Police, there was no mistaking the lusty cheers for their own side as the game progressed.

"I think that his risk of death right now is substantially lower than when he came in. he was as critical as you can be when he came in". Hodgkinson was eventually killed by Capitol police.

Underscoring the day's mood, the Rev. Patrick Conroy, the House chaplain, opened the day by seeking divine forgiveness "when we seem to forget that words matter and can become seeds that will bring bitter harvest". The popular annual face-off, which raises money for charity, is scheduled to go forward as planned Thursday evening at Nationals Park in Washington.

So far, investigators have not linked Hodgkinson to any radical groups, said a law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly.

Rep. Scalise, No. 3 in the House Republican leadership, was shot in the hip.

We are especially appreciative of the strong outpouring of love and support from our neighbors, friends, from Louisiana and across the country, as well as from President Trump, Vice President Pence, and all of Steve's colleagues who have reached out to us during this most challenging time.
