U.S. lawmaker shot by anti-Trump gunman showing improvement

Mr Scalise was shot as he fielded at second base during practice for an annual Republicans-Democrats baseball game.

The person told The Associated Press on Saturday that investigators aren’t sure of the significance of the names and don’t know if it was a list of people he was targeting.

Sava declined to put a timeline on when that would happen, or when Scalise, 51, would be able to leave the hospital.

Scalise will require additional operations, Sava said, adding that it’s hard to predict how long he will be in the hospital.

“I feel a lot more optimistic than I do two or three days ago”, Sava said.

Officials also said Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Illinois, had pictures of the ballpark on his cellphone, and had been spending time at a YMCA center beside the ballpark for several weeks – using his laptop in the lobby for hours, the Times reported.

Doctors treating Congressman Steve Scalise, wounded in the shooting. say while he remains in critical condition, they hope for an excellent recovery.

Sava explained there is a major risk to Scalise’s life because of hemorrhage that can occur as a result of the substantial damage the bullet caused to blood vessels.

“On behalf of Steve and our children, I want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for the incredible amount of prayers and warm wishes we have received since Wednesday’s events”, Scalise’s wife, Jennifer, said in a statement Friday.

Griner, Bailey and a third officer, Henry Cabrera, engaged the gunman nearly immediately, and Alexandria Police officers quickly added support upon arriving at the scene, eventually fatally wounding the alleged gunman, identified by federal law enforcement sources to CNN as James Hodgkinson.

“The lay public assumption is that a bullet goes straight in, not on a trajectory, but that trajectory could be up, in which case you’re shot to the hip but there’s a bullet in your chest or your abdomen or your pelvis”, DeBlieux said.

Vice President Mike Pence, Ivanka Trump and Senior Advisor to the President Jared Kushner listen to U.S. President Donald Trump deliver brief remarks in the Diplomatic Room following a shooting that injured a member of Congress and law enforcement officers at the White House June 14, 2017 in Washington.

She said she was married to James Hodgkinson for almost 30 years but they have not been together since March, when he moved to Washington, D.C.

He was out of surgery but remained in critical condition as of Wednesday afternoon, according to a statement from his family.

Bailey was spotted Friday in the Capitol, on crutches and out of uniform, accepting congratulations from fellow officers.

Also critically injured yesterday, Matt Mika.
