Capitol Police Officer Crystal Griner also remains at the MedStar Washington hospital after sustaining a gunshot wound to her ankle, but is in "good condition and good spirits" the hospital said. He remains in critical condition.

The Louisiana Republican is "more responsive, and is speaking with his loved ones", according to a statement posted on his Twitter account. Sava said that "an excellent recovery is a good possibility".

According to the doctors, the main concern for Scalise at this point is making sure he does not have an infection.

A playground near the baseball field is cordoned off with police tape as the investigation continue at the scene in Alexandria, Va., Thursday, June 15, 2017, the day after House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of La. was shot d.

"He was as critical as you can be when he came in", Dr. Jack Salva, with MedStar Hospital Washington Center, said during a news conference Friday. The congressman is still in critical condition in the ICU, but his doctors are staying optimistic.

The bullet damaged blood vessels, bones, and internal organs, Sava said.

Hospital officials said it is hard to predict how long the congressman will be in the hospital, but that he is expected to be able to walk and hopefully run after a period of rehabilitation.


Mr Scalise, a police officer, a congressional aide and a lobbyist were wounded on Wednesday when a man identified as James Hodgkinson, 66, from the St Louis suburb of Belleville, Illinois, opened fire on the lawmakers as they practiced for an annual charity baseball game between Republicans and Democrats. The bullet entered Scalise's left hip and tore through his pelvis, breaking bones, injuring organs and causing severe bleeding. With some "truly fantastic anesthesia care", the team was able to control some of the bleeding and then transfer Scalise to radiology, where he underwent another procedure to control more bleeding, Sava said. Sava says Scalise has responded to family members while he's still under sedation.

Sava said that after being released from the hospital, Scalise "will require a period of healing and rehabilitation". The congressman has received "many units" of blood and surgeries from multiple specialized units.

Scalise was sedated, but the husband and father of two has been able to respond to his doctors and family.

"She says she's grateful to President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and all of Scalise's Capitol Hill colleagues "who have reached out to us during this most challenging time".

Trump said Friday his "dear friend", Scalise, "took a bullet for all of us".

"The president says that because of the "tremendous pain and suffering he's now enduring. our country will perhaps become closer, more unified". He has required surgery several times since the shooting.
