Republican baseball practice gunman 'had list of names'

Craig Ferguson | 22 June, 2017, 09:03

"He will be in the hospital for a considerable period of time, presumably weeks", said Jack Sava, trauma director at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, who spoke Friday about the Louisiana Republican who remains in critical condition at the hospital in the District. "The Congressman will require additional operations and will be in the hospital for some time".

The list included Representatives Mo Brooks and Jeff Duncan, who were at the practice, and Representative Trent Franks, who was not, CBS said. He's been undergoing repeat surgeries.

"The. ways they could do that is you've ever been treated by a mental physician or in a mental hospital, or you've been convicted of a felony, or have been convicted of domestic battery", said Wagner. Jindal expressed gratitude for the Capitol Police and the nurses caring for Scalise.

Describing themselves as "much tougher" and "resilient" after the attack that united them in the way only survivors of mass shootings know too well, members separated themselves from yesterday's tragedies and zoned in on the game.

Scalise will require additional operations, Sava said, adding that it's hard to predict how long he will be in the hospital. Let's not point fingers in times like these and instead unite in opposition to evil and intolerance in support of the democratic process. Fellow legislators present during the attack noted that Scalise was talkative and drinking water immediately after being shot.

Scalise was shot in the hip, and sustained grievous injuries as the bullet traveled through his pelvis and injured internal organs.

Dr. Kris Sperry said he immediately feared for the Metairie congressman's life when he learned where he had been struck. "I'm prayerful he will pull through, and I hope he does", he said.

The gunman had a rifle and "a lot of ammo", said Sen. "There are vital blood vessels that go to the leg that can bleed quite profusely".

Fragments from the gunshot wound could pose an issue but doctors said that attempting to remove them would cause greater stress to his recovery.

Competition rule, perks draw strong field to Travelers Championship
He's won here twice in his career, and perhaps he's finally starting to peek his head out of the depths of the past year. And again, getting to the green didn't feel like a problem. "It was nice to play a really solid tournament last week ".

Gal Gadot made how much for her 'Wonder Woman' portrayal?
Forbes and other outlets report that in total, Cavill made $14 million for his movie, but even that number is unconfirmed. But given the commercial success of the reel, Gadot might receive an increase in dividends in the near future.

The surgeon on Friday said he was "a lot more confident and optimistic" about Scalise's recovery than he was two days ago.

Since then, the lawmaker has undergone multiple surgeries and procedures to stop the bleeding and fix bone. Infection also is a risk, especially if the intestines were perforated.

The gunman's choice of weapons likely magnified the danger to Scalise dramatically, Sperry noted. The shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, was fatally shot in a firefight with police.

"We will miss Steve on the field", Richmond said just before the game and after visiting Scalise in the hospital.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., recounted candidate Trump's comments prodding supporters to pummel demonstrators at rallies and said Republicans were being "sanctimonious".

Jacome had a slightly different take. Sanders said he denounced the violence "in the strongest possible terms".

Before the shooting, Scalise was slated to play second base on Thursday night for the Republicans. His aide, Zack Barth, who was shot by the Virginia assailant, walked across the field on crutches.

Barton said the shooting lasted 5-10 minutes, and there were dozens or more of shots fired.

The shot fired at Scalise left perhaps hundreds of bullet fragments internally, many of which may never be removed because surgery might be more unsafe than leaving them in place, Sava said. Both had appeared on the House floor earlier Thursday. The annual GOP-Democrats baseball game raises money for charity.

One congressman at the scene indicated there might have been a political motive in the attack.
