Congressman, others wounded in shooting in Va.

Wounded Congressman Sends Father's Day Message

The stadium projected a rare sense of unity in Washington, as members of both parties rallied together after the shocking shooting that left House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-Louisiana) in critical condition.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Still in critical condition and undergoing repeated surgery, GOP House Whip Steve Scalise "will be in the hospital for some time", according to the facility where he is recovering from a gunshot.

Scalise, Tyson Foods lobbyist Matt Mika, congressional aide Zach Barth and US Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner were shot during an attack on the Republican congressional baseball team as it practiced Wednesday morning.

Hodgkinson, who had lashed out on social media against Trump and Republicans, was shot and killed by police officers including members of Scalise's security detail who responded.

The morning after visiting Scalise in the hospital, Trump said the congressman's challenges are "more difficult" than first thought.

"He is more responsive, and is speaking with his loved ones", Scalise's account tweeted, with a note that there will be no further updates.

Sava said Scalise would need to undergo an additional operation within the next 48 hours and more beyond that.

They said that his "risk of death" has substantially lowered than when he arrived at the hospital.

Trump said the universal support for Scalise and others wounded in the shooting might help heal the country's many political differences.

Republicans and Democrats put aside their differences to root for "Team Scalise" during the Congressional Baseball Game this year.

The hospital upgraded the third-ranking Republican leader from critical condition. While the congressman was awake on the baseball field, by the time he was transported to the hospital, he was in shock and immediately received units of transfused blood.

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. Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it was too early to determine a motive in the shooting or whether the attack was an attempted political assassination.

But Flake said the final score wasn't likely to matter this year. Authorities are investigating the incident but have not identified a motive.

The game at Nationals Park carried on a century-old bipartisan ritual, this one tinged with worry about Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise and the players' determination to answer the attack by coming together in sport.

Shortly after the shooting, Bernie Sanders, the former candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, said on the Senate floor that the shooter apparently was a volunteer for his campaign past year.
