Scalise on the mend, now in 'serious' condition

The shots rang out early Wednesday morning at a baseball field in Washington D.C. suburb Alexandria, Virginia. He remains in critical condition.

"Had Scalise not been there (with his protective detail) it would have been a slaughter", Taylor said somberly. This year, Payne said, has weightier importance.

Scalise was fielding balls at second base when he was shot, according to lawmakers present.

They said Scalise dragged himself from the infield as the shooting continued.

"These guys were real heroes, and I think without them everybody probably would have been killed", Paul said.

"We're practicing what we preach", Gottheimier said. And it is - it tells you how much we share that's just something away from this.

Since then, the lawmaker has undergone multiple surgeries and procedures to stop the bleeding and fix bone.

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.

Lawmakers will continue their congressional baseball game tradition despite the shooting that wounded 5 people, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, during the Republican team's practice.

"I'm going even though votes are canceled for tomorrow and I could be going home", Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, a Democrat from Mercer County, said during the afternoon. While he is conscious and able to communicate through notes, the family says Mika requires medical equipment to breathe and will need additional surgeries. "Matt has been alert, conscious and communicating through notes". "Look, we're one family here, and here's an opportunity to demonstrate that".

Texas Rep. Roger Williams said that one of his aides, Zack Barth, was shot but was doing well and expected to fully recover. Both have since been released from the hospital.

"We will go at it", he said.

"It'll be a different game without him there", Richmond said.

Sava said he is encouraged by Scalise's improvement.

Trump tweeted, "Just left hospital".

"He's in some trouble", Trump said. "We make our arguments, and put it to the people and that's the way it goes".

Wednesday night, staffers from Scalise's office gathered at his bedside at Medstar.

"Terrific young woman", he said.

Wounded U.S. Capitol Police officer David Bailey set aside one of his crutches and threw out the game's first pitch. They ran right into the fire.

"They saved lives, and those lives testify to their bravery and selflessness better than words ever will".

The game has been held most every year since, interrupted by major events such as the Great Depression and World War II.

Wednesday's attack only served to highlight the political chasm in America that has only widened since last year's toxic presidential election. "And we always will". On Thursday House proceedings were to resume as usual, and lawmakers were returning to the Capitol in search of some semblance of normalcy.

Scalise, R-La., like other members of leadership, is assigned a full-time security detail from U.S. Capitol Police, who guard him in Washington and at home in his district. Last year, he volunteered for Sen. Sanders said he denounced the violence "in the strongest possible terms".

Before James Hodgkinson left his home in Belleville, Ill., in March, he sold almost everything he owned from his businesses.

Hodgkinson has been in the area since March, living out of his van, said local FBI Special Agent In Charge Tim Slater.

Thursday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said both of Hodgkinson's firearms - a 9 mm handgun and 7.62 mm Chinese-made assault rifle - were purchased legally.
