Lead surgeon: US congressman Scalise showing improvement after being shot

17 June 2017

Tickets to the game are available online and were selling at a rate of 500 per hour on Thursday afternoon, according to Roll Call.

Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, who was at Wednesday's practice and gave medical help after the shooting, said it would have "been awful" if the game had been canceled, and said Scalise would want it to go on.

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

Even before he shot a congressman, James Hodgkinson confused politics with violence. Capitol Police said they had "no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful".

Sen. Paul, who along with others credited Rep. Scalise's security detail as the reason mass casualties were avoided, described the scene as "sort of a killing field".

Mr Scalise was among five people wounded in the shooting.

The most significant change to the iOS app is the existence of a new sidebar menu that pops out from the left side of the screen. This means that you can see instantly what type of social interaction and engagement your Tweet has had on the Twitter-verse.

A huge ovation came from the crowd, which swelled to a record 24,959, when Special Agent David Bailey, one of the Capitol Police officers injured in the attack on Republicans at their ball practice in Virginia, threw out the first pitch. Also wounded were a lobbyist and congressional aide. He remains in hospital.

Authorities are also going over a mobile phone, computer and camera taken from Hodgkinson's white van. "I want to take a moment and send our thoughts, love and prayers to Congressman Steve Scalise and his entire family".

Scalise, 51, a Louisiana Republican who is the No. 3 House Republican, remained in critical condition at a hospital a few miles from the stadium after undergoing a third surgery on Thursday. "We wanted to show our support especially for Congressman Scalise and everybody". "So, I'll be taking Advils on the half-hour and trying not to hyperventilate too much".

"But you have long since earned my respect and you deserve to be heard, and you are an honorable individual".

"You are not alone".

The baseball tradition is said to have forged a friendship between Richmond and fellow Louisiana Rep. Scalise.

Underscoring the day's mood, Reverend Patrick Conroy, the House chaplain, opened the day by seeking divine forgiveness "when we seem to forget that words matter and can become seeds that will bring bitter harvest".

Aguilar plays outfield for the Democratic team; before the shooting, Scalise was slated to play second base for the Republicans.
