Donald Trump, Melania Trump Visit Republican Hurt In Baseball Shooting, In Hospital

15 Juin, 2017, 10:23 | Author: Claudine Rigal

The president and first lady Melania Trump brought two bouquets of flowers to the hospital.

A rifle-wielding critic of President Donald Trump opened fire Wednesday on USA lawmakers practicing for a charity baseball game, seriously wounding a top Republican congressman and three others before he was killed by police.

"Let us show the world that we can come together".

"We are strongest when we are unified and when we work together for the common good", said the U.S. president. Jeff Flake said. The 51-year-old Scalise, serving his fifth congressional term, dragged himself 10 to 15 yards into the outfield to try to get away, Flake said, leaving a bloody trail.

Scalise was shot in the hip during the assault and remained in critical condition on Wednesday evening.

Congressional aide Zachary Barth, Tyson Foods lobbyist Matt Mika, and Capitol Police special agents Crystal Griner and David Bailey also were wounded in the rampage.

After news emerged that Scalise had been shot, Giffords issued this statement: "My heart is with my former colleagues, their families & staff, and the US Capitol Police- public servants and heroes today and every day".

In front of him were two members of Scalise's security detail who had just popped out of a black SUV. By then, Loudermilk said, Hodgkinson had switched from his rifle to a pistol. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) later denounced Hodgkinson's actions.

His appearance was shorter than his predecessor's post-shooting statements, and did not contain political overtures, as President Barack Obama's reactions often did.

Rep. Palmer said he was at shortstop when he saw the shooter approach the third base line from behind the fence.

At a news conference near the scene of the shooting, Virginia's Democratic governor, Terry McAuliffe, urged gun control measures. The charity game will go ahead as scheduled at Nationals Park, home of the Washington Nationals Major League baseball team.


Sanders swiftly responded to reports the suspect had volunteered on his presidential campaign.

"I went in and I landed on a congressman, who I don't know who it was, and that probably saved my fall from breaking something", he said.

Alabama Congressman Gary Palmer of Hoover and Mo Brooks of Huntsville were on the Eugene Simpson Stadium Park ball field when a shooter began shooting at members of the Republican Congressional Baseball team.

Doyle put his hand on Barton's shoulder several times as the Republican, who was at the practice with his son, recalled the horror of realizing that friends and co-workers were under attack. LaVor saw Scalise go down, then a Capitol police officer.

"It was great having [Wenstrup] there because he knew exactly what to do", Brooks remembered.

Congressman Rodney Davis told CNN he was at the plate at the time, and Scalise was in the field at second base.

"I think there's a general feeling right now that we have so raised the rhetoric that it may be triggering some things that wouldn't happen ordinarily", he said. I Look up and there's a man with a gun. One Capitol Hill police officer suffered a gunshot wound and another officer twisted an ankle, an official said. "He asked me who was practicing this morning, Republicans or Democrats, and I said, "That's the Republicans practicing", Duncan told reporters.

"Please pray for my colleagues", Duncan said.

CHIEF MICHAEL BROWN: We were there within three minutes. During his remarks, Trump disclosed that the shooter had died, the first confirmation from any official of the death.
