Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise remains in critical condition after Wednesday's shooting at a Virginia baseball field.

Scalise, the No. 3 House Republican, sustained injuries to internal organs, broken bones and severe bleeding after being shot in his left hip on Wednesday morning on a baseball field in a Washington, D.C., suburb.

Five people were injured, including MI native Matt Mika and U.S. Rep Steve Scalise, R-Louisiana, who remain in critical condition.

A day after a shooter opened fire on Republican lawmakers' practice, the Congressional Baseball Game for Charity will go on as scheduled on Thursday.

Hodgkinson, who had lashed out on social media against Trump and Republicans, was shot and killed by police officers including members of Scalise's security detail who responded.

The game dates to 1909 and is a summertime tradition on Capitol Hill.

Here's the video of the bipartisan moment of silence and prayer for Rep. Steve Scalise and the other victims.

Later, the crowd burst into applause as Capitol Police Officer David Bailey - who was injured as he pursued the shooter - hobbled to the mound on crutches and tossed the ceremonial first pitch.

His risk of death is "substantially lower" than it was when he was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday, and "I think that an excellent recovery is a good possibility", Sava said.


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.

Speaking earlier Friday in Miami, Trump said Scalise "took a bullet for all of us" when he was shot.

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".

Sava said Friday that there are hundreds of bullet fragments in Scalise's body, but "we have no intention to try and remove all the bullet fragments at this point".

Investigators said Hodgkinson had obtained his rifle and handgun from licensed firearms dealers, and Capitol Police said they had "no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful".

Once recovered, Scalise will be able to walk and hopefully run, the doctor said.

"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". "We're united, not as Republicans and Democrats, but as United States representatives". Richmond, who plays for the Democratic team, said he had visited the hospital multiple times. Griner remains hospitalized at MedStar Hospital after getting shot in the ankle, and Sava described her in good condition.

A spokesman for George Washington University Hospital said that Matt Mika, a lobbyist wounded in the attack, was improving, and that as of Thursday night his condition had been upgraded from critical to serious.
