Scalise is spending his second day at MedSTAR Washington Hospital where another surgery is expected.

The man who shot senior Republican congressman Steve Scalise and others at a congressional baseball practice session this week had a list containing the names of three politicians, officials said.

Scalise, 51, suffered a rifle wound in his left hip that shattered bones, tore organs and caused severe bleeding. "We are encouraged by improvement in his condition over last 36 hours".

Scalise, the No. 3 House Republican, arrived at the hospital via helicopter in shock, with intense internal bleeding and "an imminent risk of death", Sava said.

Scalise has undergone multiple surgeries and will need more.

Scalise's staff did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment Saturday. Infection also is a risk, especially if the intestines were perforated.

Mr Scalise was among five people wounded in the shooting. In the immediate aftermath Wednesday the extent of his injuries was not widely known.

Damage from a bullet occurs when it's traveling.

Doctors "fully expect him to walk", Sava said, "and hopefully run".


Doctors say Scalise will be in the hospital for a "considerable period of time".

"As far as winning and losing, I think that's far from anybody's mind right now", he said.

Colleagues who visited Scalise sounded generally upbeat, but spoke more in terms of hopes than the confident predictions of the immediate aftermath a day earlier.

In a final flourish of bipartisan camaraderie for the night, Democratic Rep. Mike Doyle of Pennsylvania, his team's manager, accepted the trophy, then gave it to his GOP counterpart, Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, to put in Scalise's office on behalf of the Democrats.

The gunman, identified by authorities as James Hodgkinson, died of wounds he sustained during a shootout with police.

Hodgkinson - an IL home inspector who had been living out of his van near the park - had a social media page filled with criticism of Republicans and the Trump administration.

The FBI, ATF, U.S. Capitol Police and Alexandria Police said Thursday that said the shooter's weapons were a 9 mm handgun and a 7.62 caliber rifle, which he appears to have purchased legally.

President Trump is not planning to attend the game because of security concerns, the White House said Wednesday.

Trump and his wife Melania visited Scalise in the hospital Wednesday evening, bringing the injured congressman flowers.

Federal, state and local law enforcement officials said they were tracing the activities - both online and around Alexandria, where he lived in a van since March - of Hodgkinson.
