Rep. Scalise, wounded in Va. shooting, in fair condition -hospital

Wounded congressman sends Father's Day message - CBS46 News

The shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, a Capitol Police officer, a congressional aide and a lobbyist on Wednesday as the congressional Republican baseball team practiced in Alexandria, Va., for its annual game with congressional Democrats was savage, senseless and despicable.

Scalise's office said he was in shock when he was airlifted from Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in a leafy suburb of Washington D.C. Once at the hospital, he underwent immediate surgery and a second procedure to stop bleeding.

Scalise "continues to show signs of improvement", MedStar Washington Hospital Center said in a statement Saturday evening.

Scalise, wounded when a gunman opened fire at a Republican baseball practice, delivered a Father's Day message Sunday, June 18, through his Twitter account. "The Scalise family greatly appreciates the outpouring of thoughts and prayers", the hospital wrote, "on behalf of the Scalise family". Scalise is now "beginning an extended period of healing and rehabilitation", the hospital said.

"[Scalise] will require additional operations to manage abdominal injuries and other broken bones".

House Speaker Paul Ryan said he visited Scalise in the hospital Friday and saw him breathing on his own, talking and sending text messages. She was hospitalized at the time in good condition. Sanders wished Congressman Scalise a "very, very quick recovery".

James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Ill., has been identified by law enforcement as the shooter.
