Rep. Scalise's Condition Upgraded from Critical to Serious

Rep. Scalise's Condition Upgraded from Critical to Serious”

The officials said investigators don't know what the list of names means, but members of Congress have been briefed. The congressman underwent another surgery Saturday, and the hospital said he was more responsive and speaking with family.

Scalise was fielding ground balls at second base Wednesday when he was shot at a practice for the annual Republicans-Democrats baseball game.

Scalise, the third-ranking GOP leader in the House, "continues to show signs of improvement", MedStar Washington Hospital Center said in a statement released on behalf of his family.

Nonetheless, said Sava, "we fully expect him to be able to walk" and "hopefully run".

Scalise sustained injuries to internal organs, broken bones and severe bleeding after being shot in his left hip on Wednesday morning on a baseball field in a Washington suburb. He has been sedated, but has been brought out of sedation periodically and been able to recognize and communicate with his family, Sava said.

Because the bullet shattered, there may be hundreds of fragments in Scalise's body and doctors do not intend to try to remove them all, Sava said.

Hodgkinson, a Belleville, Illinois, home inspector who had been living out of his van near the park, had a social media page filled with criticism of Republicans and the Trump administration. Though as the trauma director added during a followup question, "an excellent recovery [for Scalise] is a good possibility" at this point, so he may not need to be hospitalized for as long as several weeks.

"We are especially appreciative of the strong outpouring of love and support from our neighbors, friends, from across Louisiana and across the country, as well as President [Donald] Trump, Vice President [Mike] Pence and all of Steve's colleagues who have reached out during this challenging time", the statement said.

Griner, who was also shot, is in the hospital in good condition and spirits after a gunshot wound to the ankle, Sava said Friday.

Scalise remains in critical condition at a hospital near the Capitol and has undergone multiple surgeries.
