President on Scalise's condition: 'He's in some trouble'

According to Politico, doctors at the MedStar Washington Hospital Center started a third operation on the 51-year-old House majority whip Thursday morning.

Hospital officials said House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., is in critical condition after a shooting during baseball practice and will require more surgeries.

Leaders decided the game will go on as scheduled at Nationals Park in Washington, home of the city's professional baseball team.

Three of Hodgkinson's five victims remain hospitalized, including Scalise, who is in critical condition after being shot in the hip; he needs to undergo another round of surgery.

Earlier Thursday, Republican lawmakers met behind closed doors to share reflections and pray. They also signed oversized cards sending well wishes to those who were injured in the shooting, including Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana.

The suspected shooter, later identified as James Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Illinois, was killed in a shootout with police.

And, in typical Trump fashion, the Commander-In-Chief took to Twitter to confirm his visit with the Republican leader. But you ultimately can't blame political partisans of any stripe, even if they're intemperate, for the inevitable fringe characters drawn to violence.

"He's a patriot. And he's a fighter", Trump said.

Trump returned to the White House immediately after the visit. "He was transported in shock to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, a Level I Trauma Center", the hospital said.

The president and his wife Melania spent about half an hour at the hospital, where White House press secretary Sean Spicer described the scene in the intensive care unit as "emotional".

Zack Barth, and aide to Texas Rep. Roger Williams, was wounded but is expected to make full recovery. Two Capitol Police officers sustained relatively minor injuries, as did a congressional aide, and they have been released from hospitals.

Two U.S. Capitol Police officers, Crystal Griner and David Bailey, who are members of Scalise's security team, also were wounded.

Hodgkinson had been in the area since March, living out of his van, said Washington FBI special agent in charge Tim Slater. Democratic former Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille said he had spoken often with the man on recent mornings at the nearby YMCA.

Over social media he had lashed out at Mr Trump and the GOP. Scalise was playing second base, his normal position on the congressional baseball team. But at a news conference, Pelosi bristled at comments made by a few Republicans and conservative activists in the aftermath of the shooting who blamed heated Democratic rhetoric for the incident. "I give him credit".

"Had they not been there, it would have been a massacre", Senator Rand Paul said to MSNBC. Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, sought safety. Barton said his son, Jack, got under an SUV.

"We will show the American people tonight that we are unified as a great nation and we will play baseball", Fleischmann said.

Rep. Jeff Duncan of SC said he had just left the practice and encountered the apparent gunman in the parking lot before the shooting.
