Rep. Scalise upgraded from 'critical' to 'serious' condition

"Congressman Steve Scalise is in serious condition", the statement from MedStar Washington Hospital said.

Democratic and Republican members of Congress are going to bat for unity at their annual charity baseball game on Thursday, just one day after the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and several others at a GOP practice in Alexandria, Virginia. Press secretary Sean Spicer said "there is not enough time to follow Secret Service protocols" to ensure Trump's safety, but the president visited Scalise in the hospital on Wednesday.

The man who shot United States congressman Steve Scalise and others at a congressional baseball practice earlier this week had with him a piece of paper with doodles and the names of three lawmakers, according to a person familiar with the case.

U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise faced an "imminent risk of death" after a high-velocity...

Scalise, 51, was in dire condition when he was first shot, but internal bleeding is under control and the prognosis is positive.

The shooter was killed by police officers whose work won praise from Trump in his remarks. Scalise was fielding balls at second base when he was hit in the hip, and sustained grievous injuries as the bullet traveled through his pelvis and injured internal organs. Democratic Rep. Mike Doyle of Pennsylvania, his team's manager, accepted the trophy, then gave it to his GOP counterpart, Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, to put in Scalise's office on behalf of the Democrats.

Trump says Warmbier's comatose return 'truly bad thing'
President Donald Trump says that the imprisonment of an American college student in North Korea was a "truly awful thing". Although the U.S. policy does not ban its citizen from visiting North Korea, the U.S.

Pence said he and his wife, Karen, were praying for Scalise and all the injured and their families, as is America.

"We've had a very, very divided country for many years", Trump said. The shooter was an IL man, James Hodgkinson, who had lashed out against US President Donald Trump and Republicans over social media. Hundreds of bullet fragments remain in his body.

It emerged Hodgkinson had a social media page filled with criticism of Republicans and the Trump administration.

"Our family asks that you continue to pray for Steve, Matt Mika, Zach Barth, and all of those hurt in this attack, and keep them in your thoughts as they face recovery".

The 59th annual baseball game, played at Nationals Park in southeast Washington, looks to be a place where members can show it. "We also praise special agents Crystal Griner and David Bailey of the Capitol Police for their heroic deeds that saved so many lives". Most say they don't need extra security, while others say for certain events, they wouldn't mind the extra security. "And I think what happened yesterday was symptomatic of it", Republican Representative Mark Sanford told MSNBC on Thursday.
