Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell suffered a shoulder fracture after tripping on his patio Sunday morning and is recovering from his home in Louisville, KY, according to the senator's office.
"This morning, Leader McConnell tripped at home on his outside patio and suffered a fractured shoulder. He has been treated, released and is working from home in Louisville," said David Popp, McConnell's communications director.
During recovery, McConnell's team has said he will work from home as investigations continue to unfold surrounding the mass shootings that took place over the weekend in El Paso, Texas, on Saturday and in Dayton, Ohio, Sunday morning.
McConnell contacted Sen. John Cornyn of Texas and Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio to express his deepest sympathies for the people of El Paso and Dayton and to "discuss the senseless tragedies of the weekend," according to his office.
