Baseball gunman had list of GOP lawmakers

Why a single gunshot to Steve Scalise's hip could be life-threatening

Dr. Jack Sava, director of trauma at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, talks about the condition of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who was shot by a gunman during Congressional baseball practice earlier in the week in Alexandria, VA., June 16, 2017.

The Congressman had been awake initially but, due to severe bleeding, had gone into shock by the time he arrived at the hospital.

"I think that his risk of death right now is substantially lower than when you came in", Sava said.

The No. 3 House Republican remains in intensive care and is likely to stay hospitalized for weeks.

"I would say that when he arrived he was in critical condition with an imminent risk of death", Sava told reporters Friday afternoon.

His sedation level has been lowered enough to where he has been able to communicate with doctors and his family.

"We fully expect him to be able to walk. hopefully, run".

A list of names - including some Republican members of Congress - was found with the Alexandria shooter, according to a law enforcement source and Rep. Mo Brooks, who was on the list and present at the practice but unharmed by the shooting.

"I was surprised by some of the reports also", Sava said.

"He's having a hard time, far worse than anybody thought", he said, adding that he hoped the country could become more unified in the aftermath of the shooting. "We all owe Steve a big, big thank you". The rifle blast left possibly hundreds of bullet fragments that the doctor said will not likely be removed. They released photos of guns similar to the handgun and rifle that were used in the attack, which officials have said were purchased legally.

Hodgkinson posted content favorable to Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on his social media accounts and signed a petition for the removal of Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

MedStar reported late Thursday evening that he had undergone another operation to treat internal injuries and a broken bone in his leg. Also suffering relatively minor injuries were two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and House GOP aide Zack Barth.

"The congressman's status remains critical". Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and critically injured and remained hospitalized.
