The congressional game, which dates to 1909 and is a summertime tradition on Capitol Hill, is a rare example of bipartisanship in an increasingly polarized Washington. Scalise was hit as a gunman sprayed bullets into a GOP congressional baseball practice outside Washington D.C.

The announcer's mention of Rep. Steve Scalise, the House majority whip who was critically wounded in the attack Wednesday, brought the masses to their feet. "When he arrived he was in critical condition with an imminent risk of death".

The hospital said Scalise was struck by a single rifle shot to the left hip that went through his pelvis, "fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding".

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

The Louisiana Republican was shot in the hip Wednesday morning in the baseball practice shooting by an IL man with grudges against President Donald Trump and the GOP. The fact that his injuries brought him close to death was not widely known initially.

"We are encouraged by improvement of his condition over the last 36 hours", Sava said.

Damage from a bullet occurs when it's traveling.

"The surgical team probably went in and bypassed arteries or veins that were injured and repaired them and took care of the bleeding", said Dr. John Hunt, the LSU trauma medical director at University Medical Center. He added that Scalise "will be able to walk and, hopefully, run". Sava says Scalise has responded to family members while he's still under sedation.

"Like all those who come to serve in our nation's capital, Steve loved this country", Pence said.

On Thursday, the hospital reiterated that Scalise will need more operations and will be in the hospital "for some time". Four others were wounded when gunman James Hodgkinson opened fire on the practice; Hodgkinson, 66, was killed by Capitol Police officers.

Congress is a contentious place, and the battles between Republicans and Democrats have never been more fierce than in the eight years under President Barack Obama and the early days of Trump's presidency.

"On behalf of Steve and our children, I want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for the incredible amount of prayers and warm wishes we have received since Wednesday's events", Scalise wrote.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., paid a visit to his injured colleague at the hospital Friday. 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.

They released photos of guns similar to the handgun and rifle that were used in the attack, which officials have said were purchased legally. The offices of both senators - Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth - turned over the emails to Capitol Police and declined to offer specifics about their content. With the chief deputy of the St. Clair County Sheriff's Department by her side, she said she felt "horrible" about the actions of her husband of almost 30 years. Griner remains hospitalized at MedStar Hospital after getting shot in the ankle, and Sava described her in good condition.

Bailey was spotted Friday in the Capitol, on crutches and out of uniform, accepting congratulations from fellow officers.
