Hospital Upgrades Scalise Condition To 'Serious,' Says He Is 'More Responsive'

Mika, a MI native, was one of five people shot when a gunman opened fire Wednesday as the Republican team practiced in Alexandria, Virginia.

A source said investigators are not sure of the significance of the names and it is not clear whether this was a list of people the attacker was targeting.

A list of names was found on Hodgkinson at the scene, which included Brooks and other Republican congressmen.

Scalise's surgeon says he can hope to make an "excellent recovery", despite being at risk of death when he arrived at the hospital. "The round fragmented, and caused significant damage to bones, internal organs and blood vessels", said Dr. Jack Sava, Director of Trauma at the hospital, in a June 16 statement.

Sava declined to put a timeline on when that would happen or when Scalise, 51, would be able to leave the hospital.

Hodgkinson 66, who was from the St. Louis suburb of Belleville, Illinois, died after being shot by police.

Trump added that Scalise is "having a hard time, far worse than anybody thought" following the shooting Wednesday.

"I feel a lot more confident and a lot more optimistic than I did two or three days ago", Sava said. U.S. Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner remained in the hospital in good condition after sustaining a gunshot wound to the ankle, according to a Friday update.

Associated Press writers Lauran Neergaard and Maria Danilova in Washington, and Jim Salter in St. Louis contributed to this report.

The Capitol Police was only present because Scalise holds the leadership position of the House Majority Whip and is assigned a security detail.

Scalise was among four people shot by a lone gunman who opened fire on a group of Republican lawmakers practicing baseball at the Eugene Simpson Stadium Park.

For now, Scalise remains in critical condition in the hospital's intensive care unit.

"Scalise continues to show signs of improvement". The annual GOP-Democrats baseball game raises money for charity. They said he was able to communicate through notes and signed the game ball from Friday's congressional baseball game.

Scalise, the third-ranking Republican in the House, underwent three surgeries, the latest one on Saturday.

"Right now when we're in Washington, D.C., once we're off the complex ... we're still high-profile targets, but we have absolutely no way to defend ourselves because of Washington, D.C.'s rather restrictive gun laws", Brooks, R-Ala., told Maria Bartiromo on "Sunday Morning Futures".
