Tragedy won't stop annual baseball game”

The hospital treating some of the victims released a statement that said Scalise was still in critical condition. He was shot in the hip in the Wednesday morning incident and the bullet fractured bones and injured internal organs, causing severe bleeding.

Nancy Pelosi whom I know. gave a wonderful talk from the wall of the House. "If you belong to the gym, they think 'well, that's a perk you shouldn't have, '" said Rep. Mike Doyle of Pennsylvania, the manager of the Democratic team.

Pelosi also notes that President Donald Trump occasionally used violent language on the campaign trail. "He was just walking and shooting", she said of the man, whom she described as white and wearing a T-shirt and shorts. "But to have a full detail following 535 people around would obviously cost prohibitive", Grothman said. Mika requires assistance to breath and will need more surgery.

"There were a number of congressmen and congressional staffers lying on the ground, and at least one of them was wounded", CNN reported. Scalise was coherent the whole time, Flake said.

"My colleagues, there are very strong emotions throughout this House today. He's in some trouble".

Words like these from Ryan and Pelosi remind us that, in times of tragedy, we can and must come together as Americans.

Barton said the shooting lasted 5-10 minutes, and there were dozens if not hundreds of shots fired.

President Trump said earlier Thursday that Scalise was "in some trouble" following Wednesday's shooting at a baseball field in nearby Alexandria, Va., that left three others injured. He says, "They ran right into the fire" and saved a lot of lives. Members walked over to those Republican lawmakers who witnessed the attack and checked in on them.

Several are from California, including Rep. Doug LaMalfa of Richvale, who is on the Republican team but wasn't at Wednesday's practice. One female and one male Capitol police officer were shot while returning fire.

Some lawmakers began pointing toward political rhetoric that has gotten out of hand as something that might have motivated the attack.

Separately, Republicans also met behind closed doors before leaving Washington for the week.

As with the shooting in 2011 of then-Rep.

Hodgkinson was a 66-year-old home inspector from Belleville, Ill., who somehow felt his allegiance to Bernie Sanders in the presidential election was not in conflict with his preference for assault weaponry. It has been a tradition since 1909, but when Democrats and Republicans take the field, it will mean much more.

Republican Sen. Rand Paul told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that "he heard as many as 50 shots".

House Democrats, who were at their own practice ahead of the shooting stopped to pray together for their Republican colleagues. The game will proceed Thursday as scheduled. The Capitol Hill Police officers were present because Scalise is a member of GOP leadership. The House canceled proceedings for the day.
