Democrats cautioned against falling into partisanship or laying blame.

Chief Matthew R. Verderosa of the United States Capitol Police said in a statement that the injured agents were doing well. "ONE FAMILY", proclaimed a sign in the crowd.

Scalise was among five people wounded when a shooter sprayed rifle fire at congressional Republicans practicing on a diamond in Alexandria.

His injuries were extensive, and he was in critical condition on Wednesday night, MedStar Washington Hospital Center said in a statement.

Vice President Mike Pence has hired an experienced criminal lawyer to respond to requests from the special counsel and congressional committees investigating possible connections between Donald Trump's campaign and Russian Federation, a spokesman for Pence said Thursday.

Since the shooting, which left members of Congress shaken, several have called for unity to bridge the divide between Republicans and Democrats. The lawmakers were practicing for a charity congressional game that will take place tonight. The man calmly asked which party's lawmakers were practicing and Duncan told him they were the Republicans. He says, "They ran right into the fire" and saved a lot of lives.

Scalise, who was standing at the second base plate, was struck by gunfire and collapsed.

In the face of it all, McBath said simply: "I have hope". "That was humbling in a way".

Rep. Roger Williams, 67, of Texas sustained a leg-ankle injury. He wore a purple boot. His aide, Zack Barth, who was shot by the Virginia assailant, walked across the field on crutches. "That's too abstract for my taste, it shows a fatal lack of empathy; a quality we need now more than ever".

The team of Democrats and Republicans holds an annual softball game against female journalists.

"There is so much you do that I disagree with", House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, a staunch conservative, told his panel's top Democrat, unwavering liberal Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif. It was no longer enough to disagree with Republicans on health-care policy; now the GOP does not "give a shit about people", Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez said earlier this year.

He is an avid baseball fan and has played on the congressional baseball team since he entered Congress in 2008.

A source close to Scalise's staff said the congressman emerged from surgery at 3:30 p.m. after about eight hours on the operating table. Still, the divide was good-natured, for once.

Votes are scheduled and the charity baseball game will go on tonight as scheduled.

"We're going to have both teams together and just have time to be with each other and reflect upon this day", Doyle said, "and to share some food and drink, and get to know each other a little bit better". He was shot in the hip in the Wednesday morning incident and the bullet fractured bones and injured internal organs, causing severe bleeding.

The answer lies in a century-old tradition: the Congressional Baseball Game. "We're going to go ahead and play the ball game".

Ryan condemned the shooting and praised the Capitol Police on the House floor later Wednesday.

John Golding could be considered the first US Capitol Police officer, though the unit was formally established a few decades later in 1828.

The shooting has raised questions about lawmakers' security, renewed the nation's contentious debate over guns and drawn fresh attention to the harsh rhetoric that reflects America's political polarization. He said he hoped the game would help heal emotional wounds.

Thursday's game will be more than a tiebreaker, though, and that's why you might want to tune in.
