Scalise, who was shot in the hip and was in a critical condition after the shooting, is now in a "fair condition" and is "beginning an extended period of healing and rehabilitation", MedStar Washington Hospital Center said on Wednesday.

The person says Scalise was moved late Thursday, but had no other updates on his condition.

The shooter who attacked a GOP baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, last week carried a list with the names of six members of Congress, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Wednesday, adding that the incident had no connection to terrorism and the shooter acted alone.

"The hospital says in a statement that Scalise remains in fair condition as he continues an extended period of healing and rehabilitation".

Hodgkinson, 66, is from Belleville, Illinois. Bernie Sanders, Slater said.

The FBI also confirmed an account given to the news media by Rep. Ron DeSantis, a Republican who said that as he was leaving the practice, just minutes before the shooting, Hodgkinson had approached him and asked whether the baseball players on the field were Republicans or Democrats.

"I know that he was struggling in all kinds of different ways, but I do not know the specifics of why he intended, or his motive at the time", Slater said".

On April 15, Hodgkinson participated in a tax reform protest. He was married for 30 years, and it appears that that marriage was not going so well.

"He was running out of money". An activity log at the storage facility revealed that he had visited his unit more than 43 times between April and June.

When the unit was searched, authorities found components for the SKS rifle, a receipt for a November 2016 gun purchase and 200 rounds of ammunition.

WJLA reported in the Tweet that Mika, a Tyson Foods lobbyist, was visited in his hospital room by Jayson Werth, a star player for Major League Baseball's Washington Nationals. The shooter died in a hospital the same day.

The FBI had said Hodgkinson came to Alexandria in March.

Scalise was the most seriously injured in the attack.The bullet pierced his pelvis, fracturing bones and injuring internal organs.
