Doctors Upgrade Rep. Scalise's Condition To 'Serious'

Donald Trump restores travel and economic restrictions on Cuba

When Scalise arrived in the hospital, he had an "imminent risk of death" and was "as critical as you can be", doctors also said.

The Capitol Police Memorial Fund was added to the list of charities that will receive money raised by the game in honor of two members of Scalise's security detail who were at the Wednesday practice session and returned fire. He was shot in the hip with a rifle round, and suffered internal bleeding and damage to internal organs.

Scalise was fielding balls at second base when he was shot, according to lawmakers present.

More on this as it develops.

Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, who was at Wednesday's practice and gave medical help after the shooting, said it would have "been awful" if the game had been canceled, and said Scalise would want it to go on.

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said in a brief interview that Democrats would be reminded of "positions they've taken in the past that are not consistent with their voice for bipartisanship today". Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and critically injured and remained hospitalized.

"He's in some trouble", Trump said during a jobs event at the White House, calling Scalise a "great fighter" and "he's going to be OK, I hope".

I would also like to personally thank all of the first responders who bravely assisted at the scene, as well as the entire staff of MedStar Washington Hospital Center for their continued excellent care. And leading figures throughout the American political spectrum, from President Donald Trump on down to local leaders, have taken note of the shooting as a cautionary tale for the nation not to let legitimate differences of opinion escalate to violence and bloodshed.

Sava said Scalise's vital signs, including blood pressure, pulse and breathing, had stabilized since he was shot, but he emphasized that the 51-year-old congressman would require further surgery. Scalise was hit as a gunman sprayed bullets into a GOP congressional baseball practice outside Washington D.C.

Ms Griner remains in hospitali at MedStar after being shot in the ankle and Mr Bailey was spotted on Friday in the Capitol, on crutches and out of uniform, accepting congratulations from fellow officers.

Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis., left, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of N.Y., House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Ky., applaud a message by President Donald Trump on the.

Hodgkinson was a volunteer for the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign previous year and has comments on his social media accounts strongly criticizing President Trump.

Once a relatively cozy affair, played at a minor league ballpark in Maryland, the game has gone big time in recent years and has been played at Nationals Park, just a few blocks from the Capitol.
