Steve Scalise Upgraded To 'Serious Condition' And Is Speaking To Family

Steve Scalise Upgraded To 'Serious Condition' And Is Speaking To Family

The hospital said Saturday Scalise is more responsive and speaking with his loved ones. "The Scalise family greatly appreciates the outpouring of thoughts and prayers", the hospital's statement said.

Witnesses at the baseball field said Hodgkinson asked a local resident about the party affiliation of the congressmen; a few moments after he learned they were Republicans, he produced a semiautomatic rifle and began firing volleys of shots.

Mr Mika's family said he was still in intensive care but was able to communicate through notes - and had signed the game ball from Friday's congressional baseball game.

The gunman, James Hodgkinson from the St Louis suburb of Belleville, Illinois, was shot dead by officers in Mr Scalise's security detail.

Scalise was one of several people shot by suspect James T. Hodgkinson ― a 66-year-old resident of IL ― who targeted a GOP team baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday.




He has had several operations since the shooting.

According to officials briefed on the FBI investigation, the list included congressmen Trent Franks of Arizona, Jeff Duncan of South Carolina, Mo Brooks of Alabama, and a few others that officials would not reveal.

The person told The Associated Press on Saturday that investigators aren't sure of the significance of the names and don't know if it was a list of people he was targeting.

Mr Scalise was airlifted to hospital in shock, with intense internal bleeding, Dr Sava said. Capitol Police officer David Bailey and Texas Rep. Roger Williams were also injured during the incident.

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