Scalise upgraded from critical to serious

Top US Republican lawmaker Steve Scalise continued to show improvement as he recovers from being shot by a gunman angry about President Donald Trump, the hospital treating him said Saturday.

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

In a statement posted to his Twitter account, Mr Scalise was said to be "more responsive, and is speaking with his loved ones".

Scalise was shot Wednesday morning as a gunman sprayed bullets into a GOP congressional baseball practice. He has required surgery several times since the shooting.

Mr Scalise's trauma surgeon said Friday he can hope to make an "excellent recovery", even though he was at imminent risk of death when he arrived at the hospital.

Doctors say Scalise will be in the hospital for a "considerable period of time". It includes photos of Scalise and his family.
