President Trump urged Americans on Thursday to pray for Rep. Steve Scalise as he fights for life a day after being shot on a baseball field. "Trump said by playing the game "you are demonstrating to the world that we will not be intimidated" by threats, or acts of violence".
Trump said, "I want to thank members of Congress, their staffs, and baseball fans across the country for supporting tonight's Congressional Baseball Game".
Hodgkinson died following a shoot-out with police on a baseball diamond in the Washington suburb of Alexandria, after his early-morning rifle and pistol attack left four people with gunshot wounds and two others with minor injuries.
The bullet damaged blood vessels, bones, and internal organs, Sava said. Doctors at MedStar Washington Hospital Center immediately performed surgery.

Scalise, a police officer, a congressional aide and a lobbyist were wounded on Wednesday when a man identified as James Hodgkinson, 66, from the St. Louis suburb of Belleville, Illinois, opened fire on the lawmakers as they practiced for an annual charity baseball game between Republicans and Democrats.

Several Republican and Democratic members of the House of Representatives and Senate on Thursday said a security review was long overdue.
House Speaker Paul Ryan and Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi had been discussing "protocol and resources for members' safety" even before the attack, said a Ryan spokeswoman, AshLee Strong.
The Capitol Police were at the ballfield in Virginia because Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., is the majority whip and member of the leadership. Scalise was shot Wednesday, June 14, 2017, at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Va., congressional officials say.
Steve Scalise, the Louisiana Republican shot Wednesday during congressional baseball practice, remains in critical condition "but has improved in the last 24 hours", MedStar Washington Hospital announced Thursday.
