Vice President Pence Visits Hospital Where Rep. Scalise Remains in Critical Condition

17 June 2017

"The bullet travelled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding", the statement said.

"He remains in critical condition, but has improved in the last 24 hours", reads a statement provided Thursday by MedStar Washington Hospital Center, the medical facility now treating Scalise.

USA lawmakers returned to regular business on Thursday and prepared to play their annual charity baseball game, one day after a man who had expressed anger toward President Donald Trump opened fire on Republican legislators, leaving a senior congressman in critical condition.

The congressional baseball game will be played at Nationals Park Thursday night, just a day after Rep. Steve Scalise was shot and critically injured in Virginia. The crowd chanted "USA!"

Both Republican and Democratic leaders at the game encouraged a sense of unity in the wake of the shooting during an otherwise politically rancorous time in Washington when the parties are sharply divided over healthcare legislation and investigations of the members of the Trump administration. Two lawmakers who were leaving practice when they encountered Hodgkinson before the shooting believe he was targeting Republicans.

Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and remains hospitalized.

The gunman was later identified as James T. Hodgkinson's and authorities continue to investigate the shooting as well as the perpetrator's motivation.

Jennifer Scalise also is thanking the first responders who rushed to her husband's aid Wednesday and the staff at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, where her husband remains in critical condition.

He underwent surgery and received blood transfusions when initially transported to MedStar Washington Hospital Center in D.C. via Medevac, and will need additional operations. His social media contained anti-Trump and anti-Republican posts.

House Speaker Paul Ryan and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told CNN's Jake Tapper on "Erin Burnett OutFront" that despite party affiliation they were both on "Team Scalise" on Thursday.

The shooting prompted talk of improving security for lawmakers, most of whom are unaccompanied by officers in their normal day-to-day pursuits.

It came the morning after Scalise was honored at the charity baseball game where he was supposed to play second base for the House Republican team.
