Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein testifies on Capitol

The House gaveled back into session Thursday a day after a shooting critically wounded a top GOP leader, Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, and injured several others, including Capitol Police officers. "The bullet traveled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding", MedStar said in a statement put out by Scalise's office.

MedStar Washington Hospital Centre, where Mr Scalise is receiving treatment, said in a statement the congressman "sustained a single rifle shot to the left hip", and that he will need additional surgeries.

President Trump is not planning to attend the game due to security concerns, the White House said on Wednesday.

"He entered the room, spoke with Scalise's family, and sat by his bedside with Mrs. Trump", Spicer said. Press Secretary Sean Spicer described it as a somber scene.

Weapons used in Republican baseball shooting appear legally bought
And the gunman was over by the third-base dugout with a clear view of the field and everybody on it. "This is not who we are". The gunman also had three domestic violence cases on his record - one involving the reckless discharge of a gun in 2006.

Mr Scalise and the others had been at the GOP team's baseball practice in nearby Alexandria, Virginia, when they were shot.

"Crystal is one of the two Capitol Police officers who saved so many lives through her heroism, along with Special Agent David Bailey". The gunman, identified as James Hodgkinson, from IL, was shot by police who responded to the scene and later died, President Donald Trump announced.

The gunman died after being wounded in a gunfight with police. "Wishing him a full recovery".

The Democrats' manager, Rep. Mike Doyle, D-Pa., reminded his team to "Clear your schedules".

How harsh is prison in North Korea? He was medically evacuated from the country and arrived in Cincinnati late Tuesday. Spokeswoman Heather Nauert (NOW'-ert) says the US hopes the other Americans will be able to return home soon.

Addressing Scalise, Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., said, "You are not alone".

Hodgkinson died from injuries sustained in a firefight with police. Rep. Roger Williams, R-Texas, injured his ankle while helping others take cover. He had been fielding balls at second base when he was hit, and dragged himself away from the infield, leaving a trail of blood until colleagues could rush to his aid. His white van, parkedat the YMCA gym beside the practice field, was searched; his cellphone, computer and camera were recovered.

"I think anybody that ever played baseball, the dream was to play in a major league stadium", Richmond said past year. On social media, Hodgkinson had previously posted messages expressing disdain for Republicans. He also says a baseball game Thursday night will go a long way to heal the community of lawmakers.

There was no immediate word from the baseball game's promoter on if it would be postponed in light of the attack. The GOP team had been particularly upbeat, having finally won the contest previous year after a long losing streak.
