Representative Steve Scalise's Condition Improves to

Scalise and three others were shot Wednesday morning at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.

"Congressman Steve Scalise is in serious condition".

The man who shot House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and others at a congressional baseball practice this week had with him a piece of paper with doodles and the names of three lawmakers.

The message thanks the many people for their prayers, support and outpouring of love.

Scalise "continues to show signs of improvement", the hospital said Saturday.

In family photos accompanying Sunday's Twitter post, Scalise is seen smiling as he enjoys everyday moments with his wife, son and daughter.

Trump added that Scalise is "having a hard time, far worse than anybody thought" following the shooting Wednesday.

When Scalise first arrived at the hospital, "he was in critical condition with an imminent risk of death", Dr. Jack Sava, the director of trauma at the MedStar Washington Hospital Center, said in a press conference Friday.

As Americans recognize the incredible role fathers play in our lives this Father's Day, the holiday is said to have taken on a "special meaning" for the family of Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.). The doctor described how a bullet from an assault rifle entered Scalise's hip and traversed his pelvis, shattering blood vessels, bones and internal organs along the way. His family said in a statement he was showing "positive results" and was expected to make a full recovery. Capitol Police said they had "no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful". U.S. Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner remained in the hospital in good condition after sustaining a gunshot wound to the ankle, according to a Friday update. He died after officers in Scalise's security detail and local police fired at him.

Hodgkinson, a Belleville, Illinois, home inspector who had been living out of his van near the park, had a social media page filled with criticism of Republicans and the Trump administration.
