US House GOP Whip in critical condition after shooting

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the members of Congress, their staffs, Capitol Police, first responders, and all others affected".

Earlier Wednesday, Trump called for unity across party lines during a subdued statement from the White House. "He said, "K thanks" and turned around". "He asked me who was practicing this morning, Republicans or Democrats, and I said: 'That's the Republicans practicing, '" Duncan told reporters. So before this House returns to its business, let's just slow down and reflect, to think about how we're all being tested right now.

McSally is a Republican from Arizona and Kustoff is a Republican from Tennessee.

As the majority whip in the House, the 51-year-old Scalise is responsible for rounding up votes and maintaining order among the Republican Party's fractious ranks.

Congressman Garret Graves, who serves with Scalise on Capitol Hill, described the turn of events as "sobering and frustrating". He said if the gunman had come after them in the dugout, "we would have been sitting ducks". The second injured congressman was not identified. The assailant later died after the incident.

The congressman added that he "seemed to be obsessed, based on his social media history, with Republicans".

Falisa Peoples, who teaches an exercise class at the YMCA, was walking to her auto when she saw a man in shorts and a T-shirt firing.

Neal offered that such discourse may have contributed to shooting suspect James T. Hodgkinson's reported decision to open fire on Republican members of Congress, staffers and others gathered at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park. Two others were killed overseas.

The Capitol Police officers were there specifically because of Scalise. Another lawmaker and police officer also received minor "secondary" injuries, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said at a Wednesday evening news conference. He said he was protesting the influence of money in politics.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., in an emotional speech on the House floor Wednesday, praised wounded Capitol Police officers Crystal Griner and David Bailey and said that lawmakers are "awed by the tremendous bravery of the Capitol Police". Officials say they're investigating Hodgkinson's whereabouts, associates, web postings and "potential motivations".

In the Senate, the leaders given personal detail are Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Majority Whip John Cornyn, Minority Whip Dick Durbin and President Pro Tem Orrin Hatch.

People are seen huddled around the man lying on the baseball field at the end of the video, while sirens are heard in the background.

During that testimony, Comey also revealed that he had leaked a memo containing his notes from a February 14 meeting with Trump . Feinstein has said the Judiciary Committee should investigate, but had asked Grassley to keep the investigations separate.
