Wounded Congressman Scalise needs several more surgeries, hospital says
WASHINGTON (AP) — The hospital where Rep. Steve Scalise is recovering after being shot says the congressman remains in critical condition and will require several more operations.
MedStar Washington Hospital Center is also providing a more detailed description of Scalise’s wounds. The hospital says he was shot in the left hip, after which “the bullet travelled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs and causing severe bleeding.”
Scalise was among several people wounded early Wednesday when a rifle-wielding attacker fired on lawmakers on a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia, outside Washington. The attacker was shot and later died.
