The Attack That Launched the US Capitol Police

Shooter James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Ill., was shot and died later Wednesday of his wounds in the hospital.

The deciding factor will probably be Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-La., who may be the best to have ever played in the game.

"It's been much more hard than people even thought at the time", Mr Trump said of the treatment of Mr Scalise, the No 3 GOP leader, who is in critical condition and underwent a third surgery at the MedStar Washington Hospital Centre.

"The congressman will require additional operations, and will be in the hospital for some time".

Marc Veasey , who practices in Washington on the Democrats' team, tweeted about the incident, as did Texas Governor Greg Abbott. EDT at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria , Virginia , for the Congressional Baseball Game when, at about 7 a.m.

Capitol Police officer David Bailey, who chased down the gunman despite being wounded himself, hobbled out to the pitcher's mound on crutches to throw out the ceremonial first pitch of the game.

But finger-pointing lingered. Republican Steve King said Democrats would be reminded of "positions they've taken in the past that are not consistent with their voice for bipartisanship today".

At the end of the introductions for the Republican team, the stadium announcer also boomed the name Steve Scalise, leading to a standing ovation.

The two sat side by side, wearing Louisiana State University's purple colored gear in honor of Scalise's alma mater.

"I feel a lot more confident and a lot more optimistic than I did two, three days ago", Sava said. More than $1 million has been raised this year for Congressional Sports for Charity.

C-SPAN provided coverage, and additional national television, radio and other media outlets tuned in.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer introduced Thursday's game.

Lawmakers take the field Thursday evening at Nationals Park.

"There is so much you do that I disagree with", House Financial Services Committee chairman Jeb Hensarling, a staunch conservative, told his panel's top Democrat, unwavering liberal representative Maxine Waters. "How dare they say such a thing!"

Several lawmakers revealed they had been the subject of threats in their areas, including Republican Representative Martha McSally, whose predecessor Gabby Giffords was shot in 2011, with a number asking for increased protection in the wake of Wednesday's attack.

This isn't just a baseball game.

UK prime minister makes Cabinet appointments
Damian Green , the former work and pensions secretary, was named first secretary of state - effectively the deputy prime minister. Aylesbury's MP has a new role this afternoon. "But I think that's what's important, I think that's what the public would expect".

"I'll miss the banter with him back and forth", Richmond said of the heckling they usually exchange from opposing dugouts.
