Lead surgeon: US congressman Scalise showing improvement after being shot

The director of trauma for MedStar Washington Hospital said Rep. Steve Scalise's condition when he arrived at the hospital was "as critical as it could be".

The annual charity game, a tradition since 1909, was held this year at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.

In all, five people were wounded when investigators said Hodgkinson opened fire with a rifle.

"The right to life is our most precious gift from God, and it is offensive and unacceptable that a single cent of taxpayer dollars would be sent to an organization that systematically aborts infants and sells their body parts".

Scalise was one of four people shot while at a practice baseball game in Alexandria, Virginia, shortly after 7 a.m. T Wednesday. More than $1 million has been raised this year for Congressional Sports for Charity.

On Friday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a statement that it continues to process evidence and "to assess the potential motivations of the single shooter".

Hospitals treated 74 people, of whom 18 remain in a critical condition. Police said on Friday that 30 people were confirmed to have died.

Hodgkinson, 66, was living out of a white Ford van parked two blocks from the ballfield.

"[It's] just shocking he is the person who did what happened yesterday". "The bullet traveled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs and causing severe bleeding", a hospital statement said.

Sen. Bill Cassidy, a doctor and colleague of Rep. Steve Scalise on Capitol Hill, said Thursday (June 15) that a gunshot wound to the hip has the potential for serious complications, and Scalise's potential recovery will become clear over the next two days.

When it was announced to House members later Wednesday that the Congressional Baseball Game for Charity would go on as scheduled, a cheer erupted. He is the House's No. 3 GOP leader.

Trump visited the Louisiana congressman at the hospital Wednesday night, and Vice President Mike Pence paid a visit Thursday morning. "He's going to be OK".

Capitol Police officers who were in Scalise's security detail wounded the shooter, who was taken into custody.

The lawyer for the president's son-in-law and close adviser said there was nothing surprising about the Post's report. Trump improperly interfered in an ongoing investigation" by firing Comey, according to the newspaper.

Scalise remains in critical condition at a hospital near the Capitol and has undergone multiple surgeries. According to the hospital, he will need further surgeries soon.

The first pitch will be thrown out by British Ambassador Nigel Kim Darroch. Unity was the theme of the spirited rivalry; Democrats won in an 11-2 blowout. The House and Senate got back to normal business on Thursday. The Capitol's usual partisan combativeness, though not absent, was less pointed than usual, and warm words were exchanged between some lawmakers with starkly opposing political philosophies. "But you have long since earned my respect, and you deserve to be heard, and you are an honorable individual". They were in good spirits despite the heat and humidity as they prepared for the congressional baseball match that pits Republicans against Democrats.

Pelosi says it's "outrageous" and "beneath the dignity" of the House, adding: "How dare they say such a thing, how dare they". It's a sentiment lawmakers frequently express after mass shootings or terrorist attacks, only to see their sharp oratorical elbows gradually return.

"There is more risk involved in removing them".

"She is wonderful, and she's a hero", said retired Capitol Police Chief Kim Dine.
