The assailant, who had nursed grievances against Mr Trump and the Republican Party, fought a gun battle with police before he was shot and later died.

The congressional baseball game is still scheduled to be played to honor Scalise and the others injured in this attack.

During the five-minute video, you can see members of the GOP baseball team scurrying for cover.

Scalise, who underwent a third surgery Thursday, is listed in critical condition after being shot through the hip.

Trump spoke during a White House event devoted to what aides called "Apprenticeship and Workforce of Tomorrow initiatives". He also thanked the first responders. He made his way up to a utility shed by home plate when he was shot. He left a trail of blood as he dragged himself to the outfield, seeking distance from the gunman who said nothing as he fired.

"Without Capitol Hill police, it would have been a massacre - we had no defense - we had no defense at all", Paul said in an interview soon after the incident. A woman walking her dog heard a female officer scream, "Drop your weapon", before the gunman "shot her and she fell to the ground". "We need medics. Victim down in the baseball field". Williams, who is one of the coaches, said the Republican baseball team holds its practice every morning at 6:30 Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria.

Bailey is a Capitol Police special agent who is part of the congressional security detail.

"While the president would like to attend the game and show his support for all of these fearless public servants, he has been advised that there is not enough time to follow Secret Service protocols", he said in response to a question.

He was out of surgery but remained in critical condition as of Wednesday afternoon, according to a statement from his family.

Tim Slater of the FBI which is now leading the investigation said that it is "too early to tell whether anyone was targeted".

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) first told media that a man had approached him and Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) to ask the question as the pair were getting into a auto. "It's fantastic to me that Trent was maybe 15 yards from him and I was maybe 20 yards from him and he missed Trent". He said, 'OK, thanks, ' and turned around. He says he was in the right place at the right time. "My colleagues were targeted today".

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders said Hodgkinson at one point volunteered for his 2016 presidential campaign.

Mr Sanders said he condemned the violence "in the strongest possible terms". He said he believed the shooter was using an AR-15-style rifle. They are investigating whether they were obtained legally.
