'Scalise took a bullet for all of us'

Parmenio Sano | 18 Giugno, 2017, 03:12

Although Scalise was able to talk while lying injured on the ball field, he had gone into shock by the time he was transported by helicopter to the hospital and arrived "in critical condition with an imminent risk of death", Sava said. Sava says Scalise has responded to family members while he's still under sedation.

The family of a lobbyist shot multiple times during a Republican baseball practice outside Washington says he has undergone additional surgery and doctors expect a full recovery.

US lawmakers returned to regular business on Thursday and prepared to play their annual charity baseball game, one day after a man who had expressed anger toward President Donald Trump opened fire on Republican legislators, leaving a senior congressman in critical condition.

Mika is a lobbyist for Tyson Foods and a former aide to Michigan Republican Rep. Tim Walberg.

The gunman died after being wounded in a gunfight with police.

The Congressional Baseball Game, an annual tradition, went on as planned Thursday.

The shooter, James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, has since been killed after a brief exchange of fire between himself and Capitol police officers.

Trump, who visited Scalise at the hospital on Wednesday, said Scalise was "in some trouble but he's going to be okay, we hope".

The shooting has raised questions about lawmakers' security, renewed the nation's contentious debate over guns and drawn fresh attention to the harsh rhetoric that reflects America's political polarization. The 66-year-old posted several angry messages about President Donald Trump and the Republican party on social media before the incident.

We are especially appreciative of the strong outpouring of love and support from our neighbors, friends, from Louisiana and across the country, as well as from President Trump, Vice President Pence, and all of Steve's colleagues who have reached out to us during this most challenging time.

Many lawmakers in both parties called for unity after the shooting.

Fragments from the gunshot wound could pose an issue but doctors said that attempting to remove them would cause greater stress to his recovery.

She said Republican vitriol and caricatures of her had resulted in "calls to my home constantly, threats in front of my family, really predicated on their comments and their paid ads".

I would also like to personally thank all of the first responders who bravely assisted at the scene, as well as the entire staff of MedStar Washington Hospital Center for their continued excellent care.
