MedStar Washington Hospital Center Director of Trauma Dr. Jack Sava speaks during a news conference in Washington, Friday, June 16, 2017, about the condition of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of La. who was shot in Alexa.

The update comes just one day after a doctor told reporters here that Scalise is not only expected to walk again but "hopefully run" some time after he is released from the hospital. He was hit in the left hip, suffering injuries to internal organs, broken bones and severe bleeding, in Wednesday's shooting.

Scalise, who has had two surgeries, will need additional operations and will be in the hospital for "a considerable period of time, presumably weeks", Sava said.

The shooter was identified as James T. Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old home inspector from IL.

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.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise listens during an interview in NY on October 8, 2014. The gunman, James T. Hodgkinson, was fatally shot by police.

A huge ovation came from the crowd, which swelled to a record 24,959, when Special Agent David Bailey, one of the Capitol Police officers injured in the attack on Republicans at their ball practice in Virginia, threw out the first pitch. That's why Democrats' and Republicans' decision to go ahead with their baseball game on Thursday in Washington is so welcome.

The shooter was killed by police officers whose work won praise from Trump in his remarks.

She said Republican vitriol and caricatures of her have resulted in "calls to my home constantly, threats in front of my family, really predicated on their comments and their paid ads".

Predicting when the congressman would be released from the hospital was hard, the doctor said, adding that "he will require a period of healing and of rehabilitation". "The Scalise family greatly appreciates the outpouring of thoughts and prayers".

"My dear friend Steve Scalise took a bullet for all of us", Trump said.

For those who aren't familiar with this annual event, it's when congressional Democrats and Republicans get together to play each other in an exhibition game that raises money for different Washington, D.C. charities. The GOP leader was "as critical as you can be" when he arrived at the hospital, Sava said.
