Scalise Upgraded From Critical To Serious Condition

Scalise Upgraded From Critical To Serious Condition

The tribute came one day after doctors upgraded the congressman's condition from "critical" to "serious".

U.S. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) was among five wounded, including the suspected gunman, in the attack as Republican Congressional members practiced for a charity baseball game.

He was identified as James T. Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Illinois.

Scalise had been awake immediately after the shooting, Sava said, but had gone into shock by the time he arrived at the hospital. He says Hodgkinson told him Trump screwed up the nation "more than anyone in the history of this country".

Scalise underwent another surgery on Saturday and "continues to show signs of improvement", MedStar Washington Hospital Center said in a statement.

Scalise "sustained a single rifle wound that entered in the area of the left hip", Sava said, adding that the round fragmented and did "substantial damage to bones, internal organs and blood vessels". Sanders wished Congressman Scalise a "very, very quick recovery".

It's still unclear if the names on the list - which includes Republican Reps.

His social media profile indicated Hodgkinson was a dedicated Bernie Sanders supporter who despised the Republican party and former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

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

Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and critically injured and remained hospitalized.

Suffering relatively minor injuries were two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and House GOP aide Zack Barth.

During a press conference on Saturday, Scalise's trauma surgeon, Dr. Jack Sava, said he is expected to recover fully but will need "a period of healing and rehabilitation" after being discharged.
