U.S. Representative Steve Scalise's condition has improved but remained critical on Thursday, a day after a man who had expressed anger toward President Donald Trump opened fire on Republican lawmakers at a baseball practice.

"I feel a lot more optimistic than I do two or three days ago", Sava said. He was shot in the hip in the Wednesday morning incident and the bullet fractured bones and injured internal organs, causing severe bleeding.

Sava said doctors will not attempt to remove what are likely to be hundreds of bullet fragments from Scalise's body, saying the risk of such a procedure typically outweighs the potential benefits. The hospital says Scalise "will require additional operations, and will be in the hospital for some time".

More on this as it develops.

Scalise, 51, is among four people shot by a gunman at a House Republican baseball practice Wednesday in the Washington suburbs.

Trump, after visiting the Louisiana Republican at the hospital, on Wednesday said Scalise was "in very tough shape - but he is a real fighter". According to the medical staff, Scalise arrived in critical condition with a "imminent risk of death".

Lobbyist Matt Mika also remains in serious condition, while congressional staff Zach Barth and U.S. Capitol Police officers Agent David Bailey and Crystal Griner continue to nurse their own injuries. The popular annual face-off, which raises money for charity, is scheduled to go forward as planned Thursday evening at Nationals Park in Washington.

Dr. Sava and his colleagues in Trauma at Washington MedStar obviously saved Rep. Scalise's life.
