Share

Press secretary Sean Spicer said "there is not enough time to follow Secret Service protocols" to ensure Trump's safety, but the president visited Scalise in the hospital on Wednesday. The other victims are recovering from their wounds, while the gunman died after a shootout with police.

Scalise, Tyson Foods lobbyist Matt Mika, congressional aide Zach Barth and US Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner were shot during an attack on the Republican congressional baseball team as it practiced Wednesday morning. Doctors didn't address what organs were damaged.

For now, Scalise remains in critical condition in the hospital's intensive care unit.

Medical staff also have removed a tube that had been inserted into Scalise's abdomen to prevent fluid from going into his lungs while he was sedated, said the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to comment on the congressman's medical status.
