"Prior to entering surgery, (Scalise) was in good spirits and spoke to his wife by phone", it added in a statement.

Brad Wenstrup described caring for Minority Whip Steve Scalise's gunshot wound as like being 'back in Iraq, ' only without his weapon.

President Trump on Wednesday condemned the "brutal assault" on members of Congress and their aides at a baseball practice outside Washington, offering prayers for the victims' "swift recovery" and praising the officers who intervened for their "heroism". He called Scalise a friend, patriot and fighter, and called for unity of the country.

The congressional staffer, who works for Rep. Roger Williams of Texas, was shot in the leg and has since been released from the hospital. He underwent surgery, while Barth is said to be in "okay" condition.

Fleischmann spent the day watching news coverage hoping to learn more about the circumstances behind the shooting.

Authorities said police returned fire on Hodgkinson. Law-enforcement officers are calling it a "deliberate attack".

Scalise was among several people wounded when a rifle-wielding attacker fired on lawmakers on a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia, outside Washington.

"A bullet just came down my street", she told an emergency dispatcher.Police audio obtained by media recorded a flood of frantic calls: "Shots being fired".

Sen. Rand Paul, who said he was in a batting cage at the time said the police prevented a massacre. Jeff Flake said Mika was the most seriously injured. "My thanks to them are inadequate but heartfelt".

Rep. Mo Brooks, an Alabama Republican, said his colleague "crawled into the outfield, leaving a trail of blood".

"He was not able to move under his own power".

A scream rang out from second base, Brooks said. He was shot in the hip.

President Donald Trump said he was "deeply saddened by this tragedy" and was monitoring developments. "The world changed a little bit for us as members", said Duncan.

Gunfire broke out this morning on a baseball field in Alexandria, Va., just outside of Washington, D.C. Republican lawmakers were on that field practicing for a congressional charity game.

Vice President Mike Pence has been speaking with the victims of Wednesday morning's attack on a Congressional Republican baseball practice.

"It has been our honor to host the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park the last nine years", the Nationals' statement said. It's a quiet community made up of restaurants, small businesses and lots of families. People are walking dogs.
