Shot US congressman still 'critical' but improving: doctor

Shot US congressman still 'critical' but improving: doctor

Scalise's condition was upgraded to "serious", from "critical" after undergoing another surgery on Saturday, according to a statement from Dr. Jack Sava, the director of trauma at the MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

Hospital officials said it is hard to predict how long the congressman will be in the hospital, but that he is expected to be able to walk and hopefully run after a period of rehabilitation.

Steve Scalise, congressional aide Zach Barth and US Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner were also shot in the early morning ambush; Capitol Police officer David Bailey and Texas Rep. Roger Williams were injured.

Instead of wearing hats representing their home teams, as is the normal tradition, this year players on both teams wore Louisiana State University hats in honor of Scalise, a Louisiana Republican, for part of the game. Hodgkinson was eventually killed by Capitol police. "The bullet traveled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding", MedStar said in a statement put out by Scalise's office.

Scalise remains in critical condition as his teammates honor him at the game at Nationals Park. He added that Scalise would be in the hospital "for some time" and would need "a period of healing and rehabilitation" after being discharged.

Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and critically injured. Scalise has been an avid participant in the game since arriving in Congress in 2008.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was wounded along with four others. Brooks said the list was short and the other names he was told of were also GOP congressmen.

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

"We are strongest when we are unified, and when we work together for the common good", Mr. Trump said in a measured response. He sustained minor injuries to one of his wrists, elbows and lower back in the process. Authorities were investigating Hodgkinson's social media posts, a cellphone, computer and camera.
