Congressman's shooter went to GOP baseball practice with list of names

Congressman's shooter went to GOP baseball practice with list of names

It was unclear whether he had emerged from surgery as of mid-day Thursday.

Scalise has received two surgeries for his injuries since Wednesday, including a surgery on Thursday in orthopedic trauma to fix a broken bone in his leg. Sava said Scalise remains in the Intensive Care Unit in critical condition.

President Donald Trump did not attend but in a video address shown on the stadium's giant screen praised the friendly nature of the annual charity event. But Slater said authorities were still working to determine a motive and had "no indication" Hodgkinson knew about the ball practice ahead of time.

The game raised more than a million dollars for charity.

"I am sickened by this despicable act", Sanders said in a statement condemning all acts of violence.

She says that everyone should examine their own conscience.

Mr Scalise remains in a critical condition after undergoing several operations, though word came from the hospital during the game that he had improved.

President Donald Trump then made a statement on the giant screen. "The congressman's status remains critical", Dr. The rifle blast left possibly hundreds of bullet fragments that the doctor said will not likely be removed.

Scalise was among five people wounded when a shooter sprayed rifle fire at congressional Republicans practicing on a diamond in suburban Alexandria, Va. Scalise was given time in between surgeries to recover and gain strength for whatever surgeries and procedures may be next.

The family said, "he is lucky to be alive" and credited the care he has received and "Matt's fighting spirit and grit".

The most immediate concern - and the one that is the most threatening to the Louisiana congressman's life - is the damage to the main blood vessels in the hip and pelvic region.

According to the medical staff, Scalise arrived in critical condition with a "imminent risk of death". It's an attack which sent several to the hospital including two Capitol police officers and Congressman Steve Scalise. "He's in some trouble". "And it was quite a day, and our police officers were incredible, weren't they?" Some 30 spectators watched the proceedings from the visitors' galleries.

This evidence may prove the fact that Hodgkinson's attack was not a random crime, but instead a calculated, premeditated political assassination attempt.

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

Scalise's wife, Jennifer, released a letter thanking people for their prayers.

Bill Cosby's Case Ends in Mistrial
Cosby is charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault that could put him in prison for the rest of his life. Gloria Allred is the lawyer for 33 of the women who accused Cosby of slipping them pills and sexually assaulting them.

The Louisiana Republican was shot in the hip Wednesday morning in the baseball practice shooting by an IL man with grudges against President Donald Trump and the GOP.

After the hospital visit, Pence headed to Miami for a conference on Central America and meetings with the leaders of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. Growing up, her father coached her brothers' baseball teams and put her in the field with them to practice.

At the end of the game when Democratic manager Pennsylvania Rep. Mike Doyle was presented the winning trophy, he called Republican manager Texas Rep. Joe Barton to join him.

Republicans and Democrats have shown they can engage in a spirited rivalry without rancor - at least on the ballfield. That's why Democrats' and Republicans' decision to go ahead with their baseball game on Thursday in Washington is so welcome.

Players from both Democrat and Republican teams observe a moment of silence at second base before the Congressional Baseball Game on Thursday.

Trump visited Scalise's hospital just hours after the congressman was shot while practicing for the Congressional Baseball Game on Wednesday.

The alleged gunman, James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, died shortly after the incident following a shoot out with police.
