Lobbyist shot is expected to make full recovery


Scalise had been at "imminent risk of death" when he was first brought into the hospital on Wednesday, and he received many units of transfused blood, Sava said.

- The condition of Steve Scalise, the third-ranking House Republican who was shot during a baseball practice last week, was upgraded to serious by a Washington hospital after he had another operation. He underwent another surgery today, but continues to show signs of improvement. Hodgkinson has been identified as the suspect in the Wednesday, June 14, 2017, Washington D.C. shooting.

The GOP house majority whip is recovering at the Medstar Washington Hospital Centre after being shot in the left hip.

Two sources close to the congressman's family said medical staff removed a tube that had been inserted into Scalise's abdomen to prevent fluid from going into his lungs while being sedated, The Baton Rouge Advocate reported.

Jennifer Scalise says in a statement that the family is "especially appreciative of the strong outpouring of love and support from our neighbors, friends, from Louisiana and across the country".




The person did not disclose the names, but said those listed had been briefed.

Law enforcement officials proceeded Friday with their investigation of the attack at a suburban Virginia park, including examining Hodgkinson's social media activities and his home in Belleville, Illinois.

The FBI said that the shooter's weapons found at the scene - a 9mm handgun and 7.62mm calibre rifle - had been legally purchased.

The attack cast a pall over Washington Wednesday, but leaders of both major parties vowed to return to business Thursday, and the annual congressional baseball game went on as scheduled that night. The officials said Friday that the significance of the list was not known.

When Dr. Sava explained the extent of Scalise's injuries, however, the full nature of what the congressman suffered became apparent.
