Shot US congressman Scalise improving

The bullet damaged blood vessels, bones, and internal organs, Sava said.

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. "I think that an excellent recovery is a good possibility", the doctor said. He arrived "in critical condition with an imminent risk of death", Sava said, adding that now, "we are encouraged by improvement in his condition". It's an attack which sent several to the hospital including two Capitol police officers and Congressman Steve Scalise.

Doctor Sava described Scalise's shot to his left hip as a devastating "trans-pelvic gunshot wound" from a high-velocity rifle.

"He was as critical as can be", Sava said. "Five people were wounded in the assault, including a member of House Leadership -- my good friend, Steve Scalise", Trump said in his weekly web and radio address to the nation.

Scalise, meanwhile, continued to improve, his doctors said. Because the bullet shattered, there may be hundreds of fragments in Mr Scalise's body and doctors do not intend to try to remove them all, Dr Sava said. "We salute them, and we also salute members of Alexandria Police, Fire and Rescue", Trump said.

Hodgkinson posted content favorable to Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on his social media accounts and signed a Change.org petition for the removal of Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. The president's meaning was not entirely clear, but Trump went on to say that "Because of him and the tremendous pain and suffering he's now enduring - and he's having a hard time, far worse than anybody thought - our country will perhaps become closer, more unified, so important".

House Speaker Paul Ryan paid a visit to his injured colleague at the hospital Friday.

On Friday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation identified the guns found at the scene of the shooting as a 9 mm handgun and a 7.62-caliber rifle.

Scalise's wife Jennifer issued a statement saying she was thankful for the "incredible amount of prayers and warm wishes" the family has received since the shooting.

Griner and Bailey have been hailed as heroes after taking down the shooter.

The president spoke about the 51-year-old from Louisiana again Friday during a speech in Miami.
