Trump says Scalise

"It was just a little odd that he kind of really walked up to us to ask and then went ahead and, probably - it was probably like three minutes, five minutes after we pulled out of the parking lot", he said. Sava says Scalise has responded to family members while he's still under sedation. The hospital said he would require additional operations and said he remained in critical condition as of Wednesday evening.

Sava said Friday that there are hundreds of bullet fragments in Scalise's body, but "we have no intention to try and remove all the bullet fragments at this point".

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.

And even as the fans rose as one to cheer Mr Scalise's name and the Capitol Police, there was no mistaking the lusty cheers for their own side as the game progressed.

She says she's grateful to President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and all of Scalise's Capitol Hill colleagues "who have reached out to us during this most challenging time".

Scalise is still in critical condition but is doing better, according to a statement from MedStar Washington Hospital Center where the congressman is now confined.

"The guy's down to a handgun, he dropped his rifle, they shoot him, I go over there, they put him in handcuffs", Conaway said, adding that if the shooter had "gotten inside the fence, where a bunch of guys were holed up in the dugout, it would have been like shooting fish in a barrel".

The person did not disclose the names, but said those listed had been briefed. Trump said Scalise "continues his very courageous fight", but added: "it's been much more hard than people even thought at the time".

Sales at gasoline stations rose 1.7 percent, the seventh increase in nine months as Canadians paid higher prices at the pump. The Canadian dollar gained against the greenback and was trading at C$1.3253 or 74.45 US cents after Thursday's report.

The shootings early Wednesday morning on a serene baseball field in suburban Washington, D.C, once again has enveloped this nation in shock and disbelief. On Thursday, he underwent more surgery.

The president made his comments as he spoke in Miami to announce a new policy on Cuba. He was transported in shock to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, a Level I Trauma Center.

Scalise, the third most powerful Republican in the House, was shot through the hip.

When gunfire erupted Wednesday as Rep. Steve Scalise played second base in a practice baseball game, one of the shots tore through his pelvis. Scalise was honored Thursday night during the annual congressional baseball game.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Speaker Paul Ryan and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi stood side by side to shout: "Let's play ball!" and the crowd chanted "U-S-A!" Because Scalise is a member of House leadership, Capitol Police were present at the field.

Some 50 to 100 shots were reportedly fired, according to other Representatives who were at the scene.

Donald Trump said Steve Scalise, the majority whip who was shot when a gunman opened fire during a congressional Republican baseball practice, is in a "more difficult" condition than was initially realized.

It's already a victory for America that members of Congress chose to go on with their charity baseball game a day after a shooting at a practice field in Alexandria, Virginia, left House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and a lobbyist in critical condition and three others injured.
