Doctors Update Condition of Congressman Shot at Baseball Practice

"The congressman's status remains critical", Jack Sava, director of trauma at MedStar Washington Hospital Centre.

Scalise was shot in the hip, with the bullet tearing through his pelvis and injuring internal organs.

Republicans and Democrats joined in friendly rivalry Thursday at their annual Congressional Baseball game, all counting themselves as members of "Team Scalise" in honor of their grievously wounded colleague.

Sava earlier said the Louisiana congressman had been at "imminent risk of death" when he was first brought into the hospital on Wednesday, and he received many units of transfused blood.

Theyre going to be there when we need them.”. "I thought we were faster than yesterday but unfortunately it's just not enough". The challengers started the regatta with a one-point deficit thanks to Team USA's topping the qualifying round-robin.

The FBI said that the shooter's weapons found at the scene - a 9mm handgun and 7.62mm caliber rifle - had been legally purchased.

A Democrat ally of Steve Scalise asked for better protection for himself and his fellow lawmakers a week before the House of Representatives Majority Whip was left fighting for his life after Wednesday's shooting at a Congressional baseball practice. They said Scalise dragged himself from the infield as the shooting continued. "He will require additional operations to manage abdominal injuries and other bone injuries". Hodgkinson had posted comments critical of President Donald Trump on his social-media accounts and engaged in a profane tirade about Trump in a chance conversation with an auto mechanic the day before the attack in Alexandria, where Hodgkinson had been living in his van since about March. Scalise was shot Wednesday, June 14, 2017, at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, .

Trump says Scalise "continues his very fearless fight", but adds: "it's been much more hard than people even thought at the time".

"I feel a lot more confident and a lot more optimistic than I did two, three days ago", Sava said.

US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said on Monday he would present options on Afghanistan to President Donald Trump "very soon". The Taliban and the Islamic State group have carried out a string of attacks in Afghanistan over the last few weeks.

Fragments from the gunshot wound could pose an issue but doctors said that attempting to remove them would cause greater stress to his recovery. His risk of death is "substantially lower" than it was when he was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday, and "I think that an excellent recovery is a good possibility", Sava said. He added that Scalise "will be able to walk and, hopefully, run". "A total of 435 members of Congress, and 300 million Americans, are pulling for him, praying for him, and pledging to him our full and total support", he said. "We're united not as Republicans and Democrats, but as United States representatives", Barton said at a joint news conference.

But Flake said the final score wasn't likely to matter this year.

"He underwent another surgery today, but continues to show signs of improvement", it said.
