President Trump Honors GOP Baseball Shooting’s First Responders LIVE STREAM
President Donald Trump is scheduled to recognize the individuals that responded to the June 14 baseball practice shooting, when a gunman opened fire on the GOP practice, sending five individuals to the hospital.
Watch the moment live above, starting at 3 p.m. EST.
Five people were injured in the shooting, most seriously was House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who was shot in the hip and required surgery. Matt Mika, a former congressional staffer-turned-lobbyist, was also shot in the attack, with injuries in his chest and arm. Two Capitol Police officers were also shot in the attack, David Bailey and Crystal Griner.
According to Rep. Mo Brooks, the shooter wrecked havoc and continuously fired his semiautomatic rifle until Hodgkinson was shot by police. Senator Jeff Flake remembers not being able to move to help Scalise until Hodgkinson was shot, saying it felt like 10-15 minutes for the police to arrive.
Hodgkinson died at George Washington University Hospital later that day. Scalise was in critical condition and remained in the hospital until July 25, and is now starting rehabilitation. All other injured individuals have recovered.
