At Louisiana's Capitol, a blood drive for US Rep. Steve Scalise

At Louisiana's Capitol, a blood drive for US Rep. Steve Scalise”

"He remains in critical condition, but has improved in the last 24 hours", reads a statement provided Thursday by MedStar Washington Hospital Center, the medical facility now treating Scalise.

Although Scalise was able to talk on the ballfield, by the time he was transported by helicopter to the hospital, he was in shock.

When Scalise arrived in the hospital, he had an "imminent risk of death" and was "as critical as you can be", doctors also said.

Dr. Jack Sava, trauma director at MedStar Washington Hospital Center where Scalise was taken, said several operations have managed to control the bleeding.

"I hope he's in good enough shape to watch, because he'll certainly feel good about what he sees", Flake said. The bullet entered Scalise's left hip and tore through his pelvis, breaking bones, injuring organs and causing severe bleeding.

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

Scalise, the third ranking member of House Republican leadership, was among six people who were injured after a gunman opened fire Wednesday in Alexandria, Virginia, during a Republicans' early-morning practice ahead of a charity baseball game.

The gunman, identified by law enforcement officials as 66-year-old James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, later died from injuries sustained during a shootout with police on the scene.

Sava said Friday that there are hundreds of bullet fragments in Scalise's body, but "we have no intention to try and remove all the bullet fragments at this point".

"Scalise continues to show signs of improvement". Congressional aide Zack Barth, Tysons Food lobbyist Matt Mika and Capitol Police Officer David Bailey were also shot in the attack, but have since been released from the hospital.

Trump said the universal support for Scalise and others wounded in the shooting might help heal the country's many political differences.

There were a lot of great images to choose from, but The Daily Caller News Foundation narrowed them down to the top seven.

Duncan found that memory hard to shake Thursday night as he stood in for Scalise at second base.

"He's in some trouble", said President Donald Trump, who had visited late Wednesday.

The Friday visit announced by Ryan's staff comes with Scalise in critical condition at MedStar Washington Hospital Center. His social media contained anti-Trump and anti-Republican posts. He declined to describe specific internal injuries.

Members of the Republican and Democratic congressional baseball teams gather for a bipartisan prayer before the start of the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park on June 15, 2017 in Washington, DC.
