Shooter went to Republican baseball practice with list of names


House Majority Whip Steve Scalise remained in critical condition Thursday evening after undergoing a second surgery to deal with internal injuries and a broken bone in his leg following the shootout at an Alexandria, Va., baseball field, the hospital said. Medstar Washington Hospital Center said the congressman underwent another surgery Saturday, and that he is more responsive and speaking with family.For three months, Hodgkinson lived out of a white cargo van in a gentrified neighborhood just miles from where USA laws are made.

Scalise and other Republican congressmen were practicing at the time for an annual game between Democratic and Republican legislators that raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity.

Scalise was rushed to MedStar Washington and immediately underwent emergency surgery. He requires assistance to breathe and will need additional surgeries, his family said through a statement.

Hodgkinson - an IL 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.

That's why Democrats' and Republicans' decision to go ahead with their baseball game on Thursday in Washington is so welcome.

Trump says, "Steve is our friend, he's a patriot and he's a true fighter". But this year after the Alexandria shooting, which left House Majority Whip Congressman Steve Scalise in critical condition and three others hurt, playing meant more than charity.

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.

But it's especially true right now for the Red Sox , who entering Monday are 28th in the major leagues with just 58 home runs. The team knows that he has earned a name for himself, and he can surely get his fastball towards the mid-90s.

Hanegby, who was married with two children, was a director in the investment banking division of Credit Suisse Group. The collision appeared to be an accident, the authorities said, and the 52-year-old bus driver remained at the scene.

Vice President Mike Pence visited Scalise Thursday morning.

She said she knew of no obvious catalyst for her husband's leaving, though she mentioned her daughter had recently moved back home with a child. "And it was quite a day, and our police officers were incredible, weren't they?"

Scalise sustained serious injuries as the bullet traveled through his pelvis and injured internal organs.

On that day, a man later identified as the attacker approached Rep. Jeff Duncan of SC in the parking lot of the Alexandria, Virginia, ballfield, asking him, "Excuse me, sir, who's practicing today, Democrats or Republicans?" as Duncan recalls the encounter.

Hodgkinson, who had a history of posting angry messages against Trump and other Republicans on social media, died after being wounded by police.

Following the shooting, President Donald Trump urged Americans to come together as he assumed the role of national unifier for one of the first times in his presidency.

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.
