Representative Steve Scalise's Condition Improves to "Serious"

The U.S. congressman who was shot and seriously injured in an attack on Republican lawmakers is showing "signs of improvement", hospital officials said Saturday.

Medstar Washington Hospital Centre released the update on behalf of the Scalise family.

He was among several people wounded early Wednesday when a rifle-wielding attacker fired on lawmakers on a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia, outside Washington.

Thankfully, nobody was killed in the tragedy (with the exception of Hodgkinson), though House Majority Whip Steve Scalise remains in the hospital.

Ambulance crews said ten people had been transferred to hospital. "Pull his head up, pull his head up", one man yells. Metropolitan Police were called to the scene in Finsbury Park, north London , at 12:20 A.M. local time on Monday.

Scalise's surgeon says he can hope to make an "excellent recovery", despite being at risk of death when he arrived at the hospital.

Hodgkinson contacted both of his state's Democratic senators frequently, always through email links on their websites, spokesmen said Friday. "The Scalise family greatly appreciates the outpouring of thoughts and prayers", the hospital's statement said.

The names have not been disclosed, those listed had been briefed.

On Friday, the hospital's director of trauma, Dr. Jack Sava, called Scalise's injury a "transpelvic gunshot wound" which had "fragmented, and caused significant damage to bones, internal organs and blood vessels".

His family said in a statement Saturday that Mika had undergone another operation and was expected to recover fully, according to NBC News. The gunman, James T. Hodgkinson, was fatally shot by police. "The doctor added, however, that Scalise will certainly be in the hospital for a considerable period of time, presumably weeks". He has been sedated, but has been brought out of sedation periodically and been able to recognize and communicate with his family, Sava said.

A onetime high school wrestler who worked for years in construction and then ran his own home inspection business, Hodgkinson spent much of his adult life in Belleville, a Southern Illinois community of just over 40,000 people not far from St. Louis.

Bailey was spotted Friday in the Capitol, on crutches and out of uniform, accepting congratulations from fellow officers.
