Scalise Upgraded From Critical To Serious Condition

House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise on Capitol Hill in 2015

Doctors immediately performed surgery, but additional operations will be required, the hospital said in the late-night statement.

Top Republican politician Steve Scalise's condition has been upgraded from critical to serious after he was gunned down at a party baseball practice outside Washington.

"Scalise continues to show signs of improvement".

"The Scalise family greatly appreciates the outpouring of thoughts and prayers", the statement concludes. The congressman underwent another surgery Saturday, and the hospital said he was more responsive and speaking with family.

A message posted on Scalise's Twitter account said the congressman from Louisiana on Saturday was watching the Louisiana State baseball game and "rooting hard for a big Tigers win" in the College World Series.

The person says investigators aren't sure of the significance of the names and it's not clear whether this was a list of people the attacker was targeting.

He had with him a piece of paper with doodles and the names of three politicians, according to a person familiar with the case.

On Friday, the hospital's director of trauma, Dr. Jack Sava, called Scalise's injury a "transpelvic gunshot wound" which had "fragmented, and caused significant damage to bones, internal organs and blood vessels".

It's still unclear if the names on the list - which includes Republican Reps.

Scalise, 51, was among four people shot by a gunman identified as James Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Ill., who died after a shootout with police.

Tyson Foods lobbyist Matt Mika, who was shot multiple times and critically wounded, has undergone surgery and doctors expect a full recovery, his family said Saturday.

Suffering relatively minor injuries were two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and House GOP aide Zack Barth.

The American Hospital Association defines "critical" condition as: "Vital signs are unstable and not within normal limits".
