"The bullet travelled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding".
A Democrat ally of Steve Scalise asked for better protection for himself and his fellow lawmakers a week before the House of Representatives Majority Whip was left fighting for his life after Wednesday's shooting at a Congressional baseball practice. Reporters in Washington tracked Scalise's every hospital update and shared it on social media.
The mood at the Capitol remained somber Thursday, as members learned more about Scalise's condition and signed giant "get well" posters for him and others injured.
Zach Barth, a staffer for Republican Congressman Roger Williams, and Matt Mika, director of government relations for Tyson Foods, were wounded in the attack. Witnesses at the baseball field said Hodgkinson asked a local resident about the party affiliation of the congressmen; a few moments after he learned they were Republicans, he produced a semiautomatic rifle and began firing volleys of shots.
His comments came after he and First Lady Melania Trump visited a sedated Scalise and his family at MedStar Washington Hospital Center. We pray for all of the victims of this awful crime who are still recovering, including Zachary Barth and Matt Mika, both of whom are respected and cherished by so many.
The FBI recovered a cellphone, computer and camera from Hodgkinson's van and was examining them for evidence, the statement said.
So it was welcome news Wednesday when Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, the manager of the GOP's congressional baseball team, held a news conference with his Democratic counterpart, Rep. Mike Doyle of Pennsylvania, to announce, "He and I both thought the game should go on".
Barton added that Scalise, who is in critical condition after being shot in the hip during the incident, would not play in the charity game. David Bailey, an officer who helped take down the shooter, threw the first pitch. The others wounded were a police officer, a congressional aide and a lobbyist. "So we sent some stuff up there and hope Steve has a quick and full recovery". What a great job they did, and we thank all of the members of the Alexandria fire, police, and rescue.
