Doctors: Scalise in critical condition but they are 'encouraged' by his improvement

When Scalise arrived in the hospital, he had an "imminent risk of death" and was "as critical as you can be", doctors also said.

The person told The Associated Press on Saturday that investigators aren't sure of the significance of the names and don't know if it was a list of people he was targeting.

Though Scalise was conscious at the scene after he was shot and his office said he talked to his wife before his first surgery, he was in shock by the time he arrived at the hospital, according to Sava.

Police and Federal Bureau of Investigation officials declined to confirm media accounts that the list of names Hodgkinson carried was a "kill list"; they said the names were listed without any other comment.

We are especially appreciative of the strong outpouring of love and support from our neighbors, friends, from Louisiana and across the country, as well as from President Trump, Vice President Pence, and all of Steve's colleagues who have reached out to us during this most challenging time. "I feel a lot more confident than I did two, three days ago". Griner remained hospitalized at MedStar Hospital after getting shot in the ankle, and Sava described her in good condition.

Scalise, meanwhile, continued to improve, his doctors said. He added that Scalise would be in the hospital "for some time" and would need "a period of healing and rehabilitation" after being discharged.

The alleged gunman, James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, died shortly after the incident following a shoot out with police.

At the moment, "there is more risk involved in removing them", said Sava.

Democrat Cedric Richmond, a fellow Louisiana congressman, said as many others did that Scalise is a fighter.

A day after firing on an active shooter to protect Congressmen under attack at a morning baseball practice in Virginia, Capitol Police officer David Bailey returned to the diamond for the annual charity game.

About 13 hours after the shooting on Wednesday, the hospital announced that Scalise had been shot in his left hip by a rifle and that "the bullet traveled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding", the hospital said in a statement Wednesday.

Those who were meant to play against Scalise at Thursday's game honored him throughout the evening as the Democrats defeated the Republicans 11-2.

Before the event, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters, "Tonight we will go to the game, play our hardest, but we will all be Team Scalise".

In that bad crime, the country also witnessed the incredible heroism of the Capitol Police, he said, adding that Special Agent Crystal Griner - who he also met during his visit to the hospital - raced into gunfire, along with Special Agent David Bailey.
