Both Congressional Baseball Teams Observe Moment of Silence at 2nd Base

Parmenio Sano | 18 Giugno, 2017, 00:54

Scalise was rushed to MedStar Washington and immediately underwent emergency surgery.

The Republican congressional baseball team had been practising for Thursday's annual charity game between Democrats and Republicans when the gunman attacked shortly after 7am.

Trump on Thursday reiterated his call for unity in the aftermath of the shooting in the Washington suburb of Alexandria, Virginia.

The congressional baseball match pits Republicans against Democrats.

Bailey received a hero's welcome from a record crowd of almost 25,000 at Thursday's game when he threw out the first pitch.

Aguilar plays outfield for the Democratic team; before the shooting, Scalise was slated to play second base for the Republicans. The Democratic side won in a blowout, but the game was played in Scalise's honor with lawmakers of both parties dressed in purple in recognition of Scalise's Louisiana State University affiliation.

Trump made his comments as Scalise remained in critical condition at MedStar Washington Hospital Center following multiple surgeries.

The No. 3 House Republican will also require additional operations before leaving the hospital Sava said, though he added that an "excellent recovery is a good possibility". Williams and Capitol Police Agent David Bailey were also injured in the incident.

Republican congressman Steve Scalise is "in some trouble" after being shot at a baseball field but "he's going to be okay, we hope", Donald Trump said.

One of the Capitol Police officers injured in Wednesday's shooting has thrown out the first pitch at the congressional baseball game - to thunderous applause. "I did tell Joe that I love him before the game and I love him after the game".

Bailey is a member of Congressman Steve Scalise's protective detail. Scalise and the others had been at the GOP team's baseball practice in nearby Alexandria, Virginia, when they were shot.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise speaks to reporters at the US Capitol, hours before an expected vote to repeal Obamacare in Washington, D.C., US on May 4, 2017.


Trump wasn't able to attend the event in person due to security protocols. Doyle gave the winning trophy back to the Republicans to put in Scalise's hospital room.

The Louisiana congressman was shot in the hip by a deranged gunman Wednesday morning while practicing for the annual charitable congressional baseball game.

Scalise was shot in the hip, with the bullet tearing through his pelvis and injuring internal organs.

Numerous players in the congressional game Thursday night are wearing Louisiana State University hats in honor of Scalise, a graduate of the school, as they assemble at Nationals Park in Washington.

"We are grateful for the care he has received, from the first responders in the field to the world-class care here at the hospital", the family said in a statement. Congressional staffer Zachary Barth, grazed in the leg, is out of the hospital.

The driver was arrested for failure to obey an order and assault with a unsafe weapon.

The FBI is scouring a computer, a cellphone and a camera from Hodgkinson's white conversion van that was found in the YMCA parking lot near the ballfield.

Hodgkinson, a Belleville, Illinois, home inspector who had been living out of his van near the park, had a social media page filled with criticism of Republicans and the Trump administration.

Here's the video of the bipartisan moment of silence and prayer for Rep. Steve Scalise and the other victims.

Investigators said Hodgkinson had obtained his rifle and handgun from licensed firearms dealers, and Capitol Police said they had "no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful".

So far, investigators have not linked Hodgkinson to any radical groups, said a law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly. Hodgkinson had arrests in his background but showed required firearms licenses to an IL deputy who confronted him about shooting a cornfield last spring.
