GOP Rep. Steve Scalise In Critical Condition After Ballfield Shootout

The hospital where Rep. Steve Scalise is recuperating from a gunshot wound says he "remains in critical condition, but has improved in the last 24 hours".

Dr. Jack Sava, trauma director at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, says several operations have controlled the bleeding and Scalise's vital signs have stabilized.

Scalise was one of five people shot when a gunman opened fire Wednesday as the Republican team practiced in Alexandria, Virginia. Griner was in good condition "and in good spirits", Sava said.

The bullet entered Scalise's left hip and tore across his pelvis, cracking bones and injuring organs and blood vessels.

Scalise had been awake immediately after the shooting, Sava said, but had gone into shock by the time he arrived at the hospital.

Three days after he was shot in the hip by a high-velocity rifle, U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise has regained consciousness and is able to talk softly, having spoken with his wife Saturday morning, according to two sources close to the congressman's family.

In a statement released Saturday, Mika's family said he has undergone additional surgery with positive results and would remain in the ICU at George Washington University Hospital at least through the weekend.

"Our family asks that you continue to pray for Steve, Matt Mika, Zach Barth, and all of those hurt in this attack, and keep them in your thoughts as they face recovery".

Mika, a MI native, was one of five people shot when a gunman opened fire Wednesday as the Republican team practiced in Alexandria, Virginia.

The president says that because of the "tremendous pain and suffering he's now enduring. our country will perhaps become closer, more unified".

U.S. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise speaks to the media after a meeting at Trump Tower on December 12, 2016, in New York City.

Scalise remains in critical condition at a hospital near the Capitol and has undergone multiple surgeries.

Scalise is being treated in the hospital's intensive care unit.
