Hodgkinson has been identified as the suspect in the Wednesday, June.

In a briefing with security officials before the House convened at noon, members of Congress from both parties talked of receiving death threats, including some since the shooting, and pleaded for additional security.

But after Wednesday's shooting of Republican Rep. Steve Scalise and several others, they did not immediately land on a new strategy to challenge Trump and the Republican-led Congress.

MedStar Washington Hospital Center released an update about Majority Whip Steve Scalise last night. Not illogically, campaigners for stricter gun ownership laws responded to the Virginia attack by suggesting the need for tighter controls.

"The assailant has now died from his injuries", Trump said in comments about the shooting. He also briefly chatted with Capitol Police officers there before returning to the White House.

Hodgkinson also appeared to be have been fervent fan of Sen. He was transported in shock to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, a Level I Trauma Center. The White House press office quickly put out a brief statement noting that Trump was "deeply saddened by the tragedy", and the president followed up with a tweet: "Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, a true friend and patriot, was badly injured but will fully recover". A Washington Post reporter said that Hodgkinson's Facebook page was "an extended screed against Trump".

Colleagues said Scalise, who had been fielding balls at second base, dragged himself away from the infield, leaving a trail of blood before they rushed to his assistance.

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, who was among the lawmakers practicing for the annual charity baseball game, which was still scheduled to take place on Thursday, told CNN that "the field was basically a killing field-it's really sick and very sad".

Scalise was shot in the left hip, suffering broken bones, injuries to internal organs and severe bleeding.

"I was pinned down in right field", Barth said. "He's going to be OK".

Scalise was one of five people shot by James Hodgkinson early Wednesday. Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and critically injured and remained hospitalized. Vice President (Mike) Pence has spoken to him. The Capitol's usual partisan combativeness, though not absent, was often less pointed than usual, and warm words were exchanged between some lawmakers with starkly opposing political philosophies.

"I would like to see the president stay off of Twitter", Republican Senator John Thune told MSNBC, adding that lawmakers had to do their part to tone down comments and work with the opposing party. "But you have long since earned my respect, and you deserve to be heard, and you are an honorable individual".

"This is not about more guns, which we know would not have prevented this event in spite of the presence of Congressman Scalise's armed detail", said the group Sandy Hook Promise.
