US Congressman Scalise Showing Improvement After Being Shot — Lead Surgeon

Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis. left Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of N.Y. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of Calif. and Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc Connell of Ky. applaud a message by President Donald Trump

Rep. Roger Williams of Texas, taken away in a stretcher with an injured ankle from the chaos in Virginia, hobbled around the third-base box Thursday night, coaching the GOP team as planned, with his crutches set aside.

Republicans and Democrats have shown they can engage in a spirited rivalry without rancor - at least on the ballfield. All proceeds from the game go to charity. Many on the Republican side were fresh from the horror of the ballfield shooting rampage a day earlier.

On the field, it was back to normal partisanship, especially after the Democrat's most valuable player, Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-La., nearly hit a home run. Unity was the theme of the spirited rivalry; Democrats won in an 11-2 blowout.

"He was in critical condition with an imminent risk of death", Dr. Jack Sava said Friday, adding that doctors have been encouraged by his progress. "He is more responsive and is speaking with his loved ones", the doctor said.

"He will require additional operations to manage abdominal injuries and other bone injuries", Sava said.

Capitol Police officer David Bailey, who was injured in Wednesday's attack, throws the first pitch. "It'll be a different game without him there".

The event raised questions about the security of members of Congress. Just less than 25,000 people attended Nationals Park to watch the annual ritual. "So we all owe Steve a big, big thank you". The other victims are recovering from their wounds. "Ladies and gentlemen, let's play ball!"

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

The alleged gunman, James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, died shortly after the incident following a shoot out with police.

The list included Republicans Rep. Trent Franks of Arizona, Rep. Jeff Duncan of South Carolina, Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama, and one or two other names, officials told the network. He has been sedated, but has been brought out of sedation periodically and been able to recognise and communicate with his family, Sava said.

She also says she didn't want to discuss her husband's politics.

The officer wound up having to jump on the hood of the driver's Mazda SUV to avoid being struck directly. Hodgkinson maintained a social media presence that was pro-Bernie Sanders and anti-Republican.

The FBI said that the shooter's weapons found at the scene - a 9mm handgun and 7.62mm caliber rifle - had been legally purchased.

Hodgkinson was fatally shot during an exchange on gunfire with police during the rampage. This person was not authorized to speak publicly about the case and spoke on condition of anonymity.
