US Congressman Scalise Showing Improvement After Being Shot — Lead Surgeon

Scalise was shot in the hip and taken to the MedStar Washington Hospital Center on Wednesday, where he underwent his first surgery after the attack.

Sava said he is encouraged by Scalise's improvement.

Scalise, the No. 3 House Republican, arrived at the hospital via helicopter in shock, with intense internal bleeding and "an imminent risk of death", Sava said.

Scalise is sedated, but the husband and father of two has been able to respond to his doctors and family.

Scalise, who has had two surgeries, will need additional operations and will be in the hospital for "a considerable period of time, presumably weeks", Sava said.

His risk of death is "substantially lower" than it was when he was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday, and "I think that an excellent recovery is a good possibility", Sava said.

"On behalf of Steve and our children, I want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for the incredible amount of prayers and warm wishes we have received since Wednesday's events", Scalise's wife, Jennifer, said in a statement Friday.

Scalise's security detail and other police officers shot and killed the assailant, James Hodgkinson of IL, who had lashed out against President Donald Trump and other Republicans over social media.

Scalise was among five people wounded when a shooter sprayed rifle fire at congressional Republicans practicing on a diamond in suburban Alexandria, Va.

Scalise was one of several people shot by suspect James T. Hodgkinson ― a 66-year-old resident of IL ― who targeted a GOP team baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday.

The bullet entered Scalise's left hip and tore through his pelvis, breaking bones, injuring organs and causing severe bleeding. Griner remained hospitalized at MedStar Hospital after getting shot in the ankle, and Sava described her in good condition.

The president's meaning was not entirely clear, but Trump went on to say that "Because of him and the tremendous pain and suffering he's now enduring - and he's having a hard time, far worse than anybody thought - our country will perhaps become closer, more unified, so important".

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., paid a visit to his injured colleague at the hospital Friday.

Law enforcement officials have said they found a list of Republican lawmakers' names on the body of James Hodgkinson, who apparently had been in the Washington area for several months stalking his targets. Capitol Police said they had "no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful".

Hodgkinson contacted both of his state's Democratic senators frequently, always through email links on their websites, spokesmen said Friday. He also suffered damage to a number of internal organs, which doctors have declined to discuss in detail.

Capitol Police Special Agent Crystal Griner, who was shot in the ankle during a gunfight with the shooter, remained at MedStar in good condition and "in good spirits", Salva said.
