Lobbyist shot is expected to make full recovery

The Latest: Lobbyist shot is expected to make full recovery Republican baseball practice gunman 'had list of names'

Sava said that after being released from the hospital, Scalise "will require a period of healing and rehabilitation".

Hodgkinson also had arrests in his background for a series of minor offenses and at least one more serious matter.

The statement noted that there would be no further updates on Scalise's condition for the rest of the weekend.

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 hospital said Scalise underwent another surgery Saturday to treat the gunshot wound.

As authorities continue to search for the motive behind Wednesday's shooting spree at a Congressional baseball practice in Virginia, FBI agents were at the gunman's home in downstate IL late into the night, looking for clues. "The Scalise family greatly appreciates the outpouring of thoughts and prayers", the hospital wrote, "on behalf of the Scalise family".

Law enforcement officials have said they found a list of Republican lawmakers' names on the body of James Hodgkinson, who apparently had been in the Washington area for several months stalking his targets. "We're going to get him back on his feet, but everybody's got to be patient cause it's going to be a slow process", said Kennedy.

Scalise remains in critical condition following the shooting at the GOP baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.

Now, chilling new reports claim that a "kill list" was discovered in the 66-year-old shooter's van.

The FBI said authorities are speaking with people who knew Hodgkinson or who may have encountered him.

The Democrats won 11-2, then turned right around and gave the trophy to the Republican team to put in Scalise's office. The shooter was an IL man, James Hodgkinson, who had lashed out against US President Donald Trump and Republicans over social media. He remains in critical condition from a shot to the hip. Capitol Police officer David Bailey and Texas Rep. Roger Williams were also injured during the incident.

"Our hearts are broken over the assault that was made, really, on all of us", she said, "but personally heartbroken over the dea...ah, at what happened to Steve Scalise, our colleague".

Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and critically injured and remained hospitalised.
