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

An update posted to Scalise's official Twitter account said that he underwent another surgery on Saturday, and added that he continues to show signs of improvement.

Scalise and three others were shot Wednesday morning at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.

Scalise's security detail and other police officers shot and killed the assailant, James Hodgkinson of IL, who had lashed out against President Donald Trump and other Republicans over social media.

Rep. Steve Scalise remains in critical condition at a Washington, DC-area hospital following a shooting on Wednesday. The others wounded were a police officer, a congressional aide and a lobbyist.

Scalise, the No. 3 House Republican, arrived at the hospital via helicopter in shock, with intense internal bleeding, Sava said.

Doctors are to provide an update on Representative Steve Scalise.

Doctors at MedStar Washington Hospital, where Rep. Scalise is being treated, discussed his condition on Friday saying that they believed he would be in the hospital for a considerable amount of time, possibly weeks.

James T. Hodgkinson, 66, allegedly opened fire on a Congressional baseball team as Republicans were practicing for an annual game to be played at Nationals Park Thursday.

Hodgkinson - an IL home inspector who had been living out of his van near the park - had a social media page filled with criticism of Republicans and the Trump administration.

Many lawmakers in both parties called for unity after the shooting.

Congressman Steve Scalise On The Mend, Upgraded To 'Serious Condition'
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise looks like he will make an "excellent recovery", doctors say - but that wasn't always the case. Scalise, 51, is among four people shot by a gunman at a House Republican baseball practice Wednesday in the Washington suburbs.

The bullet damaged blood vessels, bones, and internal organs, Sava said.

It's still too early to say if and when Scalise will return to the leadership role.

The wife of the gunman who wounded a Republican congressman and several others says her husband went to Washington because he wanted to work with people on changing tax brackets.

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. They released photos of guns similar to the handgun and rifle that were used in the attack, which officials have said were purchased legally.

The list was written out on notepad paper and found in the shooter's pocket, according to multiple sources with intimate knowledge of the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the investigation.
