Steve Scalise's condition has been upgraded to "serious" after he underwent surgery Saturday for injuries sustained in a shooting at a Republican congressional baseball practice earlier this week, the hospital treating him said in a release.
U.S. Representative Steve Scalise, the No. 3 Republican in the House of Representatives, showed further improvement days after being shot by a man who opened fire on lawmakers at a baseball practice earlier in the week, his lead surgeon said in a statement on Saturday.
Medstar Washington Hospital Centre released the update on behalf of the Scalise family.
Scalise, Tyson Foods lobbyist Matt Mika, congressional aide Zach Barth and US Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner were shot during an attack on the Republican congressional baseball team as it practiced Wednesday morning.
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".
Members of Congress took the field at Washington's Nationals Park on Thursday night for the game, many wearing hats to honor Scalise. The person did not disclose the names, but said those listed had been briefed.
The message thanks the many people for their prayers, support and outpouring of love.
Sava said Friday that there are hundreds of bullet fragments in Scalise's body, but "we have no intention to try and remove all the bullet fragments at this point".
Hodgkinson, from IL, who had lashed out against USA president Donald Trump and other Republicans over social media, was killed by Mr Scalise's security detail and other police officers. It includes photos of Scalise and his family.
Bailey was spotted Friday in the Capitol, on crutches and out of uniform, accepting congratulations from fellow officers. His family said in a statement Saturday that Mika had undergone another operation and was expected to recover fully, according to NBC News.
