Hodgkinson, who is from IL, is dead. Scalise was listed as in crticial condition in the hospital.

Former congressional aide Matt Mika was also wounded.

Scalise, ranked third in the House leadership as Majority Whip, is a conservative but a seemingly popular member with those in both parties, and his politics have nothing to do with the overwhelming response to this bad incident on the part of his constituents and others. We also expect to hear more from members of congress tomorrow before they head home to their districts, Friday. Williams, who is one of the coaches, said the Republican baseball team holds its practice every morning at 6:30 a.m.at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said.

Sen. Rand Paul, who was among the lawmakers at the scene, said on MSNBC that the only reason Capitol Police were there was because Scalise is a House leader.

MedStar Washington tweeted that House whip Scalise, of Louisiana, is in a critical condition following surgery.

A gunman opened fire at a Republican baseball practice early Wednesday morning, shooting several attendees. Congressional and law enforcement sources described it as a "deliberate attack".

Before surgery, Scalise was said to have been in good spirits and spoke to his wife before undergoing his procedure.

America is praying for all the victims of this awful shooting, Mr Trump said, describing it as a "very, very brutal assault". He will recover from this assault - and Steve, I want you to know that you have the prayers not only of the entire city behind you, but of an entire nation, and frankly the entire world. "We stand with the victims, their families and the American people on this hard day", he stated.

When the attack began Mr Scalise was practising for a charity baseball game with three others. Scalise was playing second base, his normal position on the congressional baseball team.

"We need to play this baseball game, and so I'm excited that we have chose to do that", Williams said.
