Scalise doctor hopes for 'excellent recovery' despite risk

Scalise doctor hopes for 'excellent recovery' despite risk”

"Additionally, we want to thank the Capitol Police for their heroic actions to stop the shooter before he could hurt even more people".

Sue Hodgkinson told reporters outside her IL home Thursday that she was busy with her job and didn't know a lot about what her husband, 66-year-old James Hodgkinson, did between January and March.

He was shot multiple times, including at least once in the chest. Gabby Giffords was targeted by a gunman in 2011.

Trump sat by Scalise's bedside during the half-hour visit, which Press Secretary Sean Spicer called "emotional". He's a patriot, fighter. Trump released a statement saying: "Our thoughts and prayers are with all affected".

"America is praying for you and America is praying for all of the victims of this bad shooting", he said.

He suffered injuries to internal organs, broken bones and severe bleeding after being shot in the left hip on a baseball field where he and other politicians were practising for the charity game.

Doctors say Scalise had surgery Wednesday night and will require additional surgery.

Police stood alongside the fence at the field where the women's team often gathers for early morning practices.

"When tragedy strikes we are family", said Rep. Nanette Barragan of California, who plays on the Democratic baseball team and invited all to attend the charity baseball game Thursday night at Nationals Stadium.

Bailey is a member of Congressman Steve Scalise's protective detail.

Lawmakers told reporters they saw Scalise dragging himself roughly 15 yards before the shooter was neutralized.

"A guy who eventually became nearly like if not a third son as least a well loved nephew by my wife and myself" said Rep. Tim Walberg. On Friday, Bailey was spotted back in the Capitol building, on crutches and out of uniform, accepting congratulations from fellow officers.

On Friday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation identified the guns found at the scene of the shooting as a 9 mm handgun and a 7.62-caliber rifle.

Hodgkinson, the alleged gunman who was killed by congressional security at the venue, backed Bernie Sanders.

Hodgkinson's apparent Facebook page included strong criticism of Republicans and the Trump administration. His picture is a caricature of Bernie Sanders as Uncle Sam and his feed is filled with anti-Trump sentiments. "It's about Republicans and Democrats".

They said that his "risk of death" has substantially lowered than when he arrived at the hospital.

"He always talked about becoming a police officer, and I remember when he first shared that he was working in Washington, D.C., and that he was a police officer he was so proud", Brooks said.
