Steve Scalise remains in critical condition, undergoes third surgery

The Latest:

The president spoke about the 51-year-old from Louisiana again Friday during a speech in Miami. "Let's hope so", said U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday (June 15). He will recover from this assault - and Steve, I want you to know that you have the prayers not only of the entire city behind you, but of an entire nation, and frankly the entire world.

"It's been much more hard than people even thought at the time", Mr Trump said of the treatment of Mr Scalise, the No 3 GOP leader, who is in critical condition and underwent a third surgery at the MedStar Washington Hospital Centre. It appears that Scalise, his Republican colleagues and others, who were practicing for a charity baseball game, were targeted by a man - who died from his own wounds - who disagreed with Republicans' positions. After accepting it graciously, Barton cracked, "Next year we won't be so nice".

On Wednesday night, Trump, accompanied by first lady Melania Trump, visited Scalise at the hospital.

Scalise arrived at the hospital in a critical state, facing "an imminent risk of death", Sava said.

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

An FBI-led investigation into Hodgkinson (66) was continuing on Thursday. Hodgkinson, a Belleville, Illinois, home inspector, had been living out of his van near the park.

Five people were shot and wounded including two Capitol police members and Majority Whip Steve Scalise.

The wounded Capitol Police officers were identified as David Bailey, who was treated for a minor injury, and Crystal Griner, who was shot in the ankle. "He remains in critical condition, but has improved in the last 24 hours".

Although the weather in Washington looks headed toward a near-flawless summer night, an obvious and immovable shadow is being cast over Thursday night's Congressional Baseball Game - a tradition that began more than a century ago. He declined to speak with a reporter.

IL lawmakers will still play baseball after Wednesday morning's shooting. While the top lawmakers, including Scalise, have security details, others do not and they regularly appear in public without protection.
