Ohio Congressman played in baseball game to honor Scalise


Thursday's Congressional Baseball Game for Charity, a century-old tradition for which Scalise was practicing, combines them. "If we don't play this baseball game and we go home, then they win". The bullet travelled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding.

Separately, Republicans also met behind closed doors before leaving Washington for the week. They signed oversized cards for the wounded.

Scalise, 51, and three others were wounded when a man identified as James Hodgkinson, 66, from the St Louis suburb of Belleville, Illinois opened fire on the Republican lawmakers. Over social media he had lashed out at Trump and the GOP. Hodgkinson died after officers in Mr Scalise's security detail fired back at him.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi is lashing out at "sanctimonious" Republicans - including some in Congress - who are suggesting vitriolic political rhetoric from the left may be partially to blame for the shooting that wounded GOP Congressman Steve Scalise.

Speaking on the House floor, Rep. Glenn Thompson, R-Pa., issued a call to "replace the hateful rhetoric and resistance with respect".

Democrats cautioned against falling into partisanship or laying blame. "He was transported in shock to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, a Level I Trauma Center", the statement released just after 8 p.m. Wednesday said.

Trump made a surprise visit to MedStar Washington Hospital Center around sunset Wednesday.

Trump and his wife, Melania, visited with Scalise late Wednesday.

Ryan condemned the shooting and praised the Capitol Police on the House floor later Wednesday. Williams tweeted Barth was "receiving medical attention but is doing well and is expected to make a full recovery".

Authorities say escaped Georgia inmates captured
It's because the public is in great danger. "These are seriously unsafe hoodlums that need to be apprehended", the sheriff said. Where the escapees went from there, authorities do not know. "I have never seen a reward that large", Sills said.

"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".

However, a congressional aide-turned-lobbyist, Matt Mika, was shot multiple times and critically injured, and he remained in hospital.

IL lawmakers will still play baseball after Wednesday morning's shooting. Instead of being played on the ball field in Virginia, it will now be held at Nationals Park in Washington.

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.

But finger-pointing lingered. Republican Steve King said Democrats would be reminded of "positions they've taken in the past that are not consistent with their voice for bipartisanship today".

Hodgkinson's apparent Facebook page included strong criticism of Republicans and the Trump administration.

The last time a lawmaker was shot was when Democratic Rep.

"We stand up to this kind of conduct, we push it aside and we move forward", Brooks said.
