  • Scalise Upgraded To 'Fair Condition,' Beginning Rehabilitation

Just before the game, Democratic and Republican players knelt together in prayer near second base, where Scalise would have been playing.

U.S. Capitol Police officer David Bailey, who was wounded in the shooting while protecting members of Congress, threw the first pitch. Scalise was shot Wednesday, June 14, 2017, at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, .

One day after a gunman opened fire at a Republican congressional baseball practice, shooting House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and three others, lawmakers are on the field Thursday evening at Nationals Park in Washington.

Medstar Washington Hospital Center released the update on behalf of the Scalise family. The bullet that struck Scalise tore through his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs and causing severe bleeding, the hospital said.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that on Thursday night, everyone will be "Team Scalise". He remains sedated but has been able to respond to his family.

Scalise has received multiple blood transfusions, which can affect clotting, something doctors will monitor closely.

By restricting individual U.S.travel to Cuba, the new policy also risks cutting off a major source of income for Cuba's private business sector, which the policy is meant to support.

This year's congressional charity baseball game is proceeding after a rifle-wielding critic of President Donald Trump opened fire June 14, 2017 on United States lawmakers practicing for the charity event, seriously wounding a top Republican congressman and three others before he was killed by police. He was in shock when a helicopter brought him to the hospital, according to reports. "Tonight we're all team Scalise". Once it has lodged in bone or muscle, "it's not going to do anything".

Since then he has had more than one surgery and doctors expect he will continue to have more in the near future. "His risk of death right now is substantially lower than when he came in".

Sava said Scalise would need to undergo an additional operation within the next 48 hours and more beyond that. "He's the most likable friendly personable individual on the face of the universe".

Colleagues who visited Scalise sounded generally upbeat, but spoke more in terms of hopes than the confident predictions of the immediate aftermath a day earlier.

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.

"Whether you're conservative, liberal, Democrat or Republican, we have certain beliefs and we strive to get our opinions across", Pallone said.

Trump made an unannounced visit - with first lady Melania Trump and White House physician Ronny Jackson - to the hospital late Wednesday after Scalise's first surgery. They, like so many other courageous police officers, represent the very best of us.

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". "At the same time, voters also want to enhance public safety in their respective communities", said Lee. "The last two years have shown that the two countries can cooperate and coexist in a civilized way", it said.

Capitol Police Officer Crystal Griner was also shot, as was Tyson Foods lobbyist Matt Mika and congressional staffer Zachary Barth. The hospital lists Griner in good condition.
