Congressman Scalise Upgraded to Serious Condition, Showing Improvement: Hospital

Scalise's Chief of Staff shared a message from the congressman's family at a Friday press conference.

Scalise has had two surgeries and will require additional operations, Sava said, adding that it's hard to predict how long he will be in the hospital.

Scalise, who remains in critical condition but has improved, was shot in the left hip and suffered damage to internal organs.

"He is more responsive, and is speaking with his loved ones", the hospital said, adding that he had been downgraded to "serious" condition.

"He will certainly be in the hospital for a considerable period of time", he said.

A congressional women's softball team has hit the practice field in Washington amid heavier security, a day after an attacker opened fire on Republican lawmakers practicing for a charity baseball game.

Sava also said that Crystal Griner, one of the U.S. Capitol Police officers credited with saving Scalise and others at the field, sustained a gunshot wound to her ankle.

Scalise and lobbyist Matt Mika remained in critical condition Friday.

Mr Scalise's surgeon said he can hope to make an "excellent recovery", despite being seriously ill when he arrived at hospital after the shooting in Virginia last week.

Money and egos aside, the Warriors blended beautifully from the day Durant first walked into team headquarters. He handled the situation admirably, which is why this team of All-Stars meshed so well together.

"It's been much more hard than people even thought at the time", Trump told reporters at the White House on Thursday, adding he also visited the wounded Capitol Police officer at the hospital.

Many lawmakers in both parties called for unity after the shooting.

After his visit to the Congressman's bedside, who he called a "true friend and patriot", President Trump tweeted, "Rep. Steve Scalise, one of the truly great people, is in very tough shape - but he is a real fighter". Capitol Police said they had "no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful".

Senate Majority Whip Steve Scalise and three others were wounded in the attack.

Sue Hodgkinson says she saw no signs her husband was planning violence, didn't know what to say about it and wanted her family and neighbors left alone.

The FBI is still investigating the case and is looking through Hodgkinson's belongings, including his cellphone, computer and camera.

A Secret Servicer officer was injured Wednesday evening by a vehicle he was trying to stop from disrupting President Donald Trump's motorcade back from the hospital where two victims of the attack on a congressional baseball practice are being treated.

The deciding factor will probably be Louisiana Democrat Cedric Richmond, who may be the best to have ever played in the game.
