'His politics were his religion,' congressman says of Hodgkinson

After accepting it gracefully, Mr Barton cracked: "Next year we won't be so nice".

President Trump saluted the Capitol police officers injured in the attack.

Family members of Matt Mika say the MI native was shot multiple times in his chest and arm, and he remains in the intensive care unit in critical condition at George Washington University Hospital. The doctor described how a bullet from an assault rifle entered Scalise's hip and traversed his pelvis, shattering blood vessels, bones and internal organs along the way. The suspect, identified as James T. Hodgkinson, 66, from IL, used a M4 assault carbine during the attack, CBS News also confirmed.

It emerged Hodgkinson had a social media page filled with criticism of Republicans and the Trump administration.

President Trump delivered a videotaped statement, saying, "we will not be intimidated. the game will go on".

Organizers made a decision to go on with the game on Wednesday, hours after the shooting. While he's still under sedation, Sava says Scalise has responded to family members.

Both sides depicted the event as a unifying experience.

Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis., left, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of N.Y., House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Ky., applaud a message by President Donald Trump on the video board, before the Congressional baseball game, Thursday, June 15, 2017, in Washington. The Republicans got smoked 11-2, but there were no winners or losers last night.

Sardar Singh called for questioning, Hockey India fumes
This win has ensured India a quarter-final berth in the tournament though they still have to play against Netherlands on Tuesday. The lone goal for Pakistan came through Umar Bhutta three minutes from the hooter when the contest was already lost.

He confessed later that "the fear factor was horrific".

Congressman Roger Williams, a Republican from Texas, who is on crutches after being injured while running for safety during the shooting, said he thinks the shooting had more to do with the individual than his political leaning. At least one aide was shot in the chest.

The game has since become for many a symbol of Capitol Hill collegiality - something lacking in Washington in recent years - and a sign that democracy is more powerful than any gunman.

Baseball cards handed out as fans entered the park identified the players' partisan voting percentages.

Still, the divide was good-natured for once. This game is always an important moment for both parties to come together, to support charity, build friendships, and celebrate our national pastime.

David Bailey, one of the two Capitol Police officers on Scalise's security detail who have been credited with saving his life, threw out the first pitch.

"The Congressional Baseball Game has never been about Republicans against Democrats", said Rep. Pete Aguilar, D-C.A., in an opinion piece he wrote for CNN.

The Washington Nationals Dream Foundation, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington and the Washington Literary Center are the game'€™s other beneficiaries. Politico reported Thursday that a lobbyist for Tyson Foods who was also shot Wednesday, Matt Mika, remains in critical condition and will require additional surgeries, his family said Thursday.
