Congressional shooting won't stop annual baseball game


Republicans and Democrats alike vowed to play an annual charity baseball game Thursday, after Rep. Steve Scalise (R-Louisiana) and four other people were shot by a gunman from IL on Wednesday.

Rep. Scalise was critically injured and remains in critical condition. Bailey was treated and released, and Griner was in good condition. When it was announced to House members later Wednesday that the Congressional Baseball Game for Charity would go on as scheduled, a cheer erupted.

Two U.S. Capitol Police officers, Crystal Griner and David Bailey, who are members of Scalise's security team, also were wounded.
