Doctors: Scalise remains critical, but 'excellent recovery' possible

Dr. Jack Sava, the director of trauma at the MedStar Washington Hospital Center, said this afternoon that Scalise had "sustained a single rifle wound that entered in the area of the left hip".

The shot fired at Scalise left perhaps hundreds of bullet fragments internally, many of which may never be removed because surgery might be more unsafe than leaving them in place, Sava said. When the members of the Republican team were announced, mention of Scalise's name drew a standing ovation throughout the stadium.

Doctors say the Louisiana congressman wounded during Wednesday's attack by a gunman on a baseball practice session remains in critical condition but has shown improvement.

"Both were purchased by the shooter from federal firearms licensees", the Capitol Police said in a statement. Capitol Police officer David Bailey and Texas Rep. Roger Williams were also injured during the incident. After Scalise was shot in the hip, the bullet traveled through his pelvis, fractured bones and injured internal organs.

Scalise remains in critical condition as his teammates honor him at the game at Nationals Park. The others wounded were a police officer, a congressional aide and a lobbyist.

But that was shattered by early reports that a shooter had opened fire on Republican lawmakers and staff at a baseball practice across the Potomac River in Virginia.
