Shot US congressman Steve Scalise off the critical list

Scalise "continues to show signs of improvement", MedStar Washington Hospital Center said in a statement Saturday evening. Medstar Washington Hospital Center said the congressman underwent another surgery Saturday, and that he is more responsive and speaking with family.For three months, Hodgkinson lived out of a white cargo van in a gentrified neighborhood just miles from where USA laws are made.

Scalise, the third-ranking Republican in the House, underwent three surgeries, the latest one on Saturday. Doctors said Friday the bullet entered at his hip and traveled across his body, causing severe damage to internal organs.

Scalise, Tyson Foods lobbyist Matt Mika, congressional aide Zach Barth and U.S. Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner were shot during an attack on the Republican congressional baseball team as it practiced Wednesday morning.

Scalise's trauma surgeon said Friday he can hope to make an "excellent recovery, ' even though the lawmaker arrived at the hospital Wednesday at imminent risk of death".

Hodgkinson was shot and killed by security and police officers.

The source said investigators were not sure of the significance of the names and did not know if it was a list of people Hodgkinson was targeting. Nonetheless, said Sava, "We fully expect him to be able to walk" and "hopefully run".

Doctors treating wounded House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise have upgraded his condition from "critical" to "serious". 'I think that his risk of death right now is substantially lower than when he came in. he was as critical as you can be when he came in'. The Del Ray Service Center is known as a "neutral zone" of sorts when it comes to politics; lawmakers of both parties take their cars there."His whole tone and composure changed", Dauberman said.

Sava said he told Scalise's family that "I am not declaring victory until he's playing ball in his back yard with his family".

Capitol Police officer David Bailey and Texas Rep. Roger Williams were also injured during the incident.

Griner remained in the hospital in good condition after sustaining a gunshot wound to the ankle, according to a Friday update.

Two other people injured in Wednesday's attack in Alexandria, Va., remain hospitalized.
