Virginia shooting: Republican House Whip Steve Scalise 'critical'

Parmenio Sano | 16 Giugno, 2017, 03:10

The shooting occurred one day before the annual Congressional Baseball Game, which is scheduled for June 15 at Nationals Park. "Our thoughts and prayers are with all affected".

A rifle-wielding critic of President Donald Trump opened fire Wednesday on U.S. lawmakers practicing for a charity baseball game, seriously wounding a top Republican congressman and three others before he was killed by police. The President who visited Scalise at the hospital with the first lady said the Republican was in "tough shape" and a "great fighter".

However, it's "too early to tell" if Republican members of congress were targeted by the gunman, Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Tim Slater said at a press conference. Gabby Giffords was targeted by a gunman in 2011.

Scalise remained in critical condition as of Wednesday night, according to his office.

"The president entered the room, spoke with Scalise's family members and sat by his bedside with Mrs Trump", Press Secretary Sean Spicer said, describing the scene in the intensive care unit as emotional. "If Scalise wouldn't have been on the team, unfortunately he was hit and I hope he does well, but also by him being there he probably saved everybody else's life".

U.S. President Donald Trump, a Republican, said he and Vice President Mike Pence were aware of the shooting and are monitoring developments closely. He underwent surgery but requires additional procedures to mend significant internal injuries, including a broken hip and damage to internal organs.

US President Donald Trump visited Mr Scalise in hospital, and offered his support on Twitter.


"It's been much more hard than people even thought at the time", President Trump, 71, said on Thursday.

"I'm down on the ground helping the guy who's got a bullet hole in his leg, " said Brooks who said he was on the third base line getting ready to bat. Several lawmakers in the conference said leadership told them Scalise was likely in surgery at that very moment.

He was lying motionless and was "coherent the whole time" when Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said.

The assailant, who had nursed grievances against Mr Trump and the Republican Party, fought a gun battle with police before he was shot and later died. "Go look at my Facebook page". His picture is a caricature of Bernie Sanders as Uncle Sam and his feed is filled with anti-Trump sentiments.

"I am sickened by this despicable act", said Sanders from the Senate floor. "Real change can only come about through nonviolent action, and anything else runs against our most deeply held American values".

A congressional staffer, Zach Barth, was also injured.
