Would-be gunman Hodgkinson launched into Trump tirade before shooting

Congressional Baseball Game breaks records for fundraising ticket sales

Up until a recreational congressional Republican baseball practice was shot up last week, the news media had been anticipating violence from one side.

A single rifle wound caused "substantial damage" to Scalise's internal organs and blood loss, his doctor explained Friday.

MedStar Washington Hospital Center says Scalise underwent surgery Thursday related to his internal injuries and a broken bone in his leg.

Since then he has had more than one surgery and doctors expect he will continue to have more in the near future.

In his first public comments since the shooting, Dr. Jack Sava of MedStar Washington Hospital Center said it's a "good possibility" that the Louisiana Republican will be able to return to work in his full capacity.

US President Donald Trump has called for unity in the wake of the horrific shooting incident in which a top Republican leader was injured, saying that despite differences the devotion to the country brings the people together. "Five people were wounded in the assault, including a member of House Leadership - my good friend, Steve Scalise", Trump said in his weekly web and radio address to the nation.

The president paid a visit to Scalise on Wednesday night. Capitol Police said they had "no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful". He requires assistance to breathe and will need additional surgeries, his family said through a statement.

Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, who was at Wednesday's practice and gave medical help after the shooting, said it would have "been awful" if the game had been canceled, and said Scalise would want it to go on.

Richard Wagner, chief deputy of the St. Clair County, Ill., Sheriff's Dept., said there was nothing in Hodgkinson's record that would prevent him from legally owning firearms in IL.

The FBI has recovered a list of names of Republican congress members from the pocket of James T. Hodgkinson, the shooter who opened fire on members of Congress on June 14, according to the Daily Caller. Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and critically injured and remained hospitalized.

"They saved a lot of lives", the president said.

Suffering relatively minor injuries were two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and House GOP aide Zack Barth.

Yesterday morning's baseball practice was in preparation for the Congressional Baseball Game this evening at Nationals Park in Washington - which took place as scheduled.
