Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise condition has improved after being shot Wednesday in Alexandria, Virginia.

Scalise was shot Wednesday, June 14, 2017, at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, .

Hodgkinson, who wounded three others before police shot him dead in the Wednesday-morning melee, had been a passionate supporter of Sen.

The Russian military said Friday it is investigating whether an airstrike in the Syrian desert has killed Abu Bakr Baghdadi, Islamic State's self-described "caliph".

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.

Scalise suffered a rifle wound in his left hip that shattered bones, tore organs and caused severe bleeding.

But Scalise still faces multiple surgeries, a prolonged hospital stay and a lengthy recovery, Sava stressed.

Although Scalise was able to talk on the ballfield, by the time he was transported by helicopter to the hospital, he was in shock. He's been sedated since then, the doctor added, "but we've been able to turn that sedation down enough for him to respond to his family members, and he clearly knows that they're there and appreciates their presence".

After a church ceremony to pay respect to those who died in the fire, London mayor Sadiq Khan said he found "a community frustrated and angry".

Sava also said Capitol Police Officer Crystal Griner, who was also transported to the MedStar facility is now, "in good condition and she's in good spirits".

Hodgkinson, a Belleville, Illinois, 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.

"Congressman Steve Scalise is in serious condition", the release said.

Trump, in a video message played at the game, said the event had "a much deeper level of meaning" because of the shooting. His family said in a statement Saturday that Mika had undergone another operation and was expected to recover fully, according to NBC News.

PGA Tour to start blood testing next season
He said tour officials saw how the blood testing was administered and whether the actual testing affected performance. However, if players test positive for drugs of abuse, that won't be reported unless the player is actually suspended.

The lawmakers took the field with many wearing hats to honor Scalise. The others wounded were a police officer, a congressional aide and a lobbyist.
