Wounded US lawmaker 'in some trouble', Trump says

Wounded US lawmaker 'in some trouble', Trump says

Scalise's trauma surgeon said Friday he can hope to make an "excellent recovery", even though the lawmaker arrived at the hospital Wednesday at imminent risk of death. "It went across the pelvis, causing fracturing of the bone and causing damage to internal organs".

The first pitch will be thrown out by British Ambassador Nigel Kim Darroch.

Bailey gave a good-natured shrug as the stadium applauded.

CBS News chief medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook goes into detail about the nature of Rep. Steve Scalise's injuries. Scalise, who was shot in the hip, is now out of surgery.

Collins, one of President Donald Trump's closest allies in Congress, said he did not routinely carry, but the shooting has changed his mind about when and where he should have his firearm.

But he recorded a message that played at the top of the game, paying tribute to Rep. Steve Scalise, who remains in critical condition following a shooting attack on the Republicans practicing for the game Wednesday morning.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., recounted candidate Trump's comments prodding supporters to pummel demonstrators at rallies and said Republicans were being "sanctimonious". "America is praying for you and America is praying for all of the victims of this awful shooting". "I'm not just talking about the general, 'I hope you die, ' 'I hope you get cancer.' We're all getting those, too, but some of those are more threatening, and you have to take those seriously".

Tickets and sponsorships for the game each year raise several hundred thousand dollars for local charities, including the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation and the Washington Literacy Centre. Hodgkinson, a Belleville, Illinois, home inspector, had been living out of his van near the park. But she says he sold items from his business and told her he was going to Washington.

One of the wounded officers, David Bailey, also surprised the crowd with his attendance.

But Thursday night's Congressional Baseball Game will have a somber tone as Scalise and three others continue to recover in the hospital.

I visited Steve and his family at the hospital last night.

The arrest was first reported by CNN.

An FBI-led investigation into Hodgkinson (66) was continuing on Thursday. He was killed by Capitol Police at the park in Alexandria, Virginia.

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

He also offered love ad prayers to Rep. Scalise and his family.

Sources tell ABC News that the primary weapon used in shooting was a SKS 7.62 assault style rifle. This person was not authorized to speak publicly about the case and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The House used a voice vote Thursday to approve a resolution lauding the Capitol Police for protecting lawmakers and stating that "violence has no place" in society.
