Scalise remains in critical condition after shooting

President Trump Makes a Hospital Visit

WASHINGTON (AP) - Congressman Steve Scalise can hope to make an "excellent recovery", his trauma surgeon said Friday, even though the lawmaker arrived at the hospital Wednesday at imminent risk of death after getting shot at a congressional baseball practice. Because the bullet shattered, there may be hundreds of fragments in Mr Scalise's body and doctors do not intend to try to remove them all, Dr Sava said.

Scalise was one of five people wounded Wednesday morning, when a shooter opened fire at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.

The bullet did "substantial damage" to Scalise's bones, internal organs and blood vessels, Sava revealed.

Sava said it's hard to predict how long Rep. Scalise will be in the hospital, but he did say it will be a considerable amount of time, likely weeks.

More on this as it develops.

Griner, who was also shot, is in the hospital in good condition and spirits after a gunshot wound to the ankle, Sava said Friday. "The first operation is dedicated mainly to bleeding control and the other types of work you have to do are staged for later operations", said Sava.


The president says that because of the "tremendous pain and suffering he's now enduring. our country will perhaps become closer, more unified". We reported to you on June 15th, 2017, that 66-year-old IL resident James T Hodgkinson, shot and injured five people at the republican baseball practice.

The wife of wounded GOP congressman Steve Scalise says she is thankful for all the prayers and warm wishes her family has received since her husband was shot at a baseball practice. Scalise was shot in the left hip by Hodgkinson and has remained in critical condition ever since.

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.

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

The briefing started with Brett Horton who read a letter on behalf of the family. Richmond, who plays for the Democratic team, said he had visited the hospital multiple times. Bailey hobbled out to the pitcher's mound Thursday to a standing ovation to throw the opening pitch of the Congressional baseball game.

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