US Rep. Scalise's condition upgraded to 'serious' after shooting

Jennifer Scalise also is thanking the first responders who rushed to her husband's aid Wednesday and the staff at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, where her husband remains in critical condition.

Doctor Sava described Scalise's shot to his left hip as a devastating "trans-pelvic gunshot wound" from a high-velocity rifle.

According to the spokesperson, Scalise underwent another surgery on Saturday.

The gunman, identified by authorities as James Hodgkinson, died of wounds he sustained during a shootout with police. The officials said Friday that the significance of the list was not known. It includes photos of Scalise and his family.

Nonetheless, said Sava, "We fully expect him to be able to walk" and "hopefully run". Also hurt but released from hospitals were two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and House GOP aide Zack Barth.

"Congressman Steve Scalise is in serious condition", the Majority Whip's office tweeted with a message from the Louisiana Rep.'s family.

Sava said he told Scalise's family that "I am not declaring victory until he's playing ball in his back yard with his family". 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 statement noted that there would be no further updates on Scalise's condition for the rest of the weekend.

On Thursday night Scalise was honored at the annual congressional baseball game at Nationals Stadium, where a record crowd showed up.

Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot in the chest at the baseball practice.

A congressman said Hodgkinson asked him whether it was the Democratic or Republican team practicing before he carried out the shooting.
