Sava said that after being released from the hospital, Scalise "will require a period of healing and rehabilitation".

"These guys were real heroes, and I think without them everybody probably would have been killed", Paul said.

A single rifle wound caused "substantial damage" to Scalise's internal organs and blood loss, his doctor explained Friday.

Trump visited Scalise's hospital just hours after the congressman was shot while practicing for the Congressional Baseball Game on Wednesday. On Thursday, Scalise, the House majority whip, had another operation to fix a bone in his leg.

Scalise received numerous blood transfusions as surgeons worked to fix his torn blood vessels and other wounds, Sava said, adding: "We are encouraged by improvement in his condition over the last 36 hours".

Hodgkinson was shot by Capitol Police on the scene after allegedly opening fire and wounded Rep. His family said in a statement he was showing "positive results" and was expected to make a full recovery.

According to the police, the suspect, Hodgkinson, opened fire during the baseball team practice at the YMCA sports complex in the Del Ray area of Alexandria, Virginia (about 15 km south of Washington), where Scalise was present.

Prior to the start of Thursday night's Congressional baseball game between the Republicans and the Democrats, the two sides gathered near second base for an emotional moment of prayer.


You can lay the latest shooting of Republican Rep. Steve Scalise at the feet of former President Barack Obama and the progressive Democratic Party.

She said Republican vitriol and caricatures of her had resulted in "calls to my home constantly, threats in front of my family, really predicated on their comments and their paid ads".

Investigators now confirm the gunman who shot at Congressman Steve Scalise and three others, including Congressional staff and Capitol Police Officers, was carrying a list of names, which included congressmen.

President Trump spoke about Scalise earlier on Thursday and asserted that the GOP Whip's health battle was much more serious than originally believed.

Steve Scalise, one of the most influential men in congress, faces a long road to recovery.

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

"It was not only chaotic but it was a combat situation", Alexandria Police Chief Mike Brown told reporters.

On Friday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation identified the guns found at the scene of the shooting as a 9 mm handgun and a 7.62-caliber rifle.
