U.S. Representative Steve Scalise remained in critical condition on Friday, a hospital spokeswoman, after he was shot by a gunman earlier in the week who opened fire on Republican lawmakers practicing for a baseball game.

He was airlifted to MedStar Washington Hospital Center Wednesday and is in critical condition recovering from surgery.

Scalise underwent a third procedure and second surgery for his gunshot wound Thursday.

Scalise's security detail and other police officers shot and killed the assailant, James Hodgkinson of IL, who had lashed out against President Donald Trump and other Republicans over social media.

Scalise has previously played in the congressional game, and in previous years wore a variety of Louisiana jerseys.

Scalise has received an outpouring of prayers from members of both parties.

The Democrats would go on to win the game, convincingly, by a final 11-2.

Sava says infection remains a risk, after doctors performed several surgeries to stop bleeding and begin repairing abdominal and bone damage.

"Our family asks that you continue to pray for Steve, Matt Mika, Zach Barth, and all of those hurt in this attack, and keep them in your thoughts as they face recovery". Trump said in remarks at the White House on Thursday.


"While the president would like to attend the game and show his support for all of these courageous public servants, he has been advised that there is not enough time to follow Secret Service protocols", Trump spokesman Sean Spicer said Wednesday night.

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.

Doctors at MedStar Washington Hospital, where Rep. Scalise is being treated, discussed his condition on Friday saying that they believed he would be in the hospital for a considerable amount of time, possibly weeks. One person who won't be among them: President Trump.

"So we all owe Steve a big, big thank you", Trump added.

The FBI said it is also examining a number of social media postings purportedly made by Hodgkinson that criticized Trump.

Hodgkinson also contacted the office of Rep. Mike Bost, R-Ill., at least 10 times over the past year, a Bost spokesman has said, characterizing the emails and phone calls as negative but not threatening. It's a sentiment lawmakers frequently express after mass shootings or terror attacks, only to see their sharp oratorical elbows gradually return.

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said in a brief interview that Democrats would be reminded of "positions they've taken in the past that are not consistent with their voice for bipartisanship today".

Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis., left, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of N.Y., House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Ky., applaud a message by President Donald Trump on the.

The shooting prompted talk of improving security for lawmakers, most of whom are unaccompanied by officers in their normal day-to-day pursuits.
