US Rep. Scalise's condition upgraded to 'serious' after shooting

"He is more responsive, and is speaking with his loved ones", MedStar Washington Hospital said in an email Saturday.

Trump also adds, as he's said previously, that Scalise is "having a hard time, far worse than anybody thought" following the shooting Wednesday. They released photos of guns similar to the handgun and rifle that were used in the attack, which officials have said were purchased legally.

His family said they appreciate the support they've received from lawmakers and the president, and are thankful for the bravery of the special agents. Authorities are investigating the incident but have not identified a motive. The doctor declined to discuss details of damage to Scalise's internal organs and said the medical team would make no effort to remove "possibly hundreds" of bullet fragments in the lawmaker's abdomen.

Many members of the House and Senate from both major political parties have spoken warmly about Scalise's gregarious nature this week. U.S. Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner remained in the hospital in good condition after sustaining a gunshot wound to the ankle, according to a Friday update.

The annual congressional baseball game dates back to 1909, and Republicans and Democrats since then have each won an equal number of games - 39. Long-ago Little Leaguers now in Congress don their spikes and dust off their gloves in a game played for claiming top dog status and to benefit several charities.

The attacker, who had traveled to Washington several months ago from the Midwestern state of IL, was fatally wounded by members of the Capitol Police who were in a security detail protecting Scalise.

Although he trails by two, Fowler is optimistic that he can finally land a major after a series of near-misses. Open will begin with the top 16 places on the leaderboard all occupied by players who have yet to win a major.

Scalise, the No. 3 House Republican, arrived at the hospital via helicopter in shock, with intense internal bleeding and "an imminent risk of death", Sava said.

The FBI said it was investigating the shooter's "activities and social media impressions" in the months leading up to the attack.

The congressman grievously wounded when a gunman opened fire at a Republican baseball practice is delivering a Father's Day message through his Twitter account. Richmond, who plays for the Democratic team, said he had visited the hospital multiple times.

Despite the bipartisan motivation behind the game, especially this year, partisanship was hardly abandoned as Democrats and Republicans faced off, each side seriously itching for a win.

Hodgkinson also contacted the office of Rep. Mike Bost, R-Ill., at least 10 times over the past year, a Bost spokesman has said, characterizing the emails and phone calls as negative but not threatening.

Other players on the field wore Louisiana State University gear in honor of Scalise, who's a graduate of the school.
