'Excellent' prognosis for legislator hurt in shooting

Congressional Baseball Game breaks records for fundraising ticket sales

And of course this year is different.

The shooting occurred at a popular park and baseball complex across the Potomac River in Alexandria, where Republican lawmakers and others were gathered for a morning practice about 7 a.m.

Supporters of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., hold signs before the Congressional baseball game, Thursday, June 15, 2017, in Washington.

Off the field, some legislators - such as Bucks County Republican Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick and Democratic U.S. Rep.

Scalise is being treated in the hospital's intensive care unit. Will you update us on his condition?

Ms Griner remains in hospitali at MedStar after being shot in the ankle and Mr Bailey was spotted on Friday in the Capitol, on crutches and out of uniform, accepting congratulations from fellow officers. He did have a third surgery this morning.

Rep. Steve King of Iowa said over Twitter, "The center of America is disappearing, and the violence is incited by the leading cultural voices of the Left".

Damage from a bullet occurs when it's traveling.

Scalise has received multiple blood transfusions, which can affect clotting, something doctors will monitor closely.

President Trump is not planning to attend the game due to security concerns, the White House said on Wednesday. This is what he had to say.

"It's a pretty good time for all, except for the fact that the Democrats beat us so much", Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., said on CNN before describing what happened. It's been - he's in some trouble. "I hope he is going to pull through this, but it's a serious injury".

The Democrats won the game, 11-2, but loaned the trophy to the Republicans until Scalise is better.

The FBI says the shooter, 66-year-old James Hodgkinson, was killed by police.

"Both were purchased by the shooter from federal firearms licensees", the Capitol Police said in a statement.

DAVIS: The sergeant at arms, Paul Irving, met again with Republicans at that meeting.

In addition to the annual beneficiaries, the event also will benefit the Capitol Police Memorial Fund in honor of the officers who responded to Wednesday's shooting. "We will use this occasion as one that brings us together", Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told media.

"The security detail saved a lot of lives", he said. "And what we just saw here is one of the bad side effects of someone not exercising those rights properly".

"The Scalise family greatly appreciates the outpouring of thoughts and prayers".

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

The game was still Republicans versus Democrats, with most of the crowd seated in partisan sections.

"I know you all will be playing extra hard tonight for Steve", he said. And then it's one of those things that has really built long-lasting, personal friendships across the aisle.

"I totally agree with that", Evans added, noting that he and Fitzpatrick have teamed up at events in other districts, trying to get to know not only their colleagues but other Pennsylvania constituents.
