Scalise is still in critical condition at Medstar Washington Hospital Center, but an update Thursday indicated that his condition had improved after a second surgery.

David Bailey, one of the Capitol Police officers injured in the shooting at a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia, threw out the first pitch at the game.

Hodgkinson, from IL, who had lashed out against United States president Donald Trump and other Republicans over social media, was killed by Mr Scalise's security detail and other police officers.

Rep. Steve Scalise remains in critical condition at a Washington, DC-area hospital following a shooting on Wednesday.

Nonetheless, said Sava, "We fully expect him to be able to walk" and "hopefully run".

Capitol Police Officer Crystal Griner also remains at the MedStar Washington hospital after sustaining a gunshot wound to her ankle, but is in "good condition and good spirits" the hospital said. In a statement released Thursday morning, his family said Mika was shot in the chest and arm and suffered massive trauma, the Detroit News reports.

President Donald Trump, who visited Scalise in the hospital on Wednesday, sent a video message that played at the start of the game.

"The security detail saved a lot of lives", he said. The congressman's risk of death was now substantially lower because doctors have controlled the bleeding and his vital signs have stabilised.

Scalise will be in the hospital "for some time" and will need "a period of healing and rehabilitation" after being discharged.

Investigators said Hodgkinson had obtained his rifle and handgun from licensed firearms dealers, and Capitol Police said they had "no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful".

US Representative Steve Scalise, the No 3 House Republican, has shown improvement in the past 36 hours after being shot by a man who opened fire on Republican lawmakers at a baseball practice earlier in the week, his lead surgeon said on Friday.

The FBI said it was investigating the shooter's "activities and social media impressions" in the months leading up to the attack.

Hodgkinson also contacted the office of Rep. Mike Bost, R-Ill., at least 10 times over the past year, a Bost spokesman has said, characterizing the emails and phone calls as negative but not threatening.

According to the American Hospital Association, "serious" and "critical" condition is among the two most grave designations that medical officials use to describe a patient's general condition, though "serious" is a less urgent designation than "critical".

Bailey was spotted Friday in the Capitol, on crutches and out of uniform, accepting congratulations from fellow officers.
