Trump calls for unity after shooting targeting lawmakers

Grace Luna | 18 June, 2017, 02:13

The bullet entered his left hip and tore through his pelvis, breaking bones, injuring organs and causing severe bleeding.

CBN News has confirmed the Federal Bureau of Investigation recovered a "hit list" with several names of Republican congressmen on the body of 66-year-old James Hodgkinson, the Alexandria shooter.

"When he arrived he was in critical condition with an imminent risk of death", Sava said, adding that the Louisiana lawmaker is expected to be in the hospital for weeks.

"She's in good condition and she's in good spirits", Sava said. Sava said that after being released from the hospital, Scalise "will require a period of healing and rehabilitation".

Scalise will need more operations for his injuries, but doctors can't yet predict how many are necessary. He has been sedated, but has been brought out of sedation periodically and been able to recognize and communicate with his family, Sava said. "And because of him, and the tremendous pain and suffering he's now enduring - he's having a hard time, far worse than anybody thought - our country will perhaps become closer, more unified". Because the bullet shattered, there may be hundreds of fragments in Mr Scalise's body and doctors do not intend to try to remove them all, Dr Sava said.

Scalise, meanwhile, continued to improve, his doctors said. Hodgkinson maintained a social media presence that was pro-Bernie Sanders and anti-Republican.

The FBI said that the shooter's weapons found at the scene - a 9mm handgun and 7.62mm caliber rifle - had been legally purchased.

House Speaker Paul Ryan paid a visit to his injured colleague at the hospital Friday. Hodgkinson contacted both of his state's Democratic senators frequently, always through email links on their websites, spokesmen said Friday.

The 66-year-old of Belleville, Illionis, opened fire early Wednesday morning at an Alexandria, Virginia, baseball field where GOP lawmakers were practicing for an upcoming charity baseball game.

"On behalf of Steve and our children, I want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for the incredible amount of prayers and warm wishes we have received since Wednesday's events", Scalise's wife, Jennifer, said in a statement Friday. But he stopped short of providing specifics of Scalise's internal injuries.
