Another victim of the shooting, Matt Mika, has undergone an additional surgery and shown "positive results", according to a statement released by his family.

The congressman grievously wounded when a gunman opened fire at a Republican baseball practice is delivering a Father's Day message through his Twitter account. He has undergone several surgeries since Wednesday's shooting.

MedStar said in a statement Friday that Scalise was in critical condition but had showed signs of improvement.

"He is more responsive, and is speaking with his loved ones", the hospital said, adding that he had been downgraded to "serious" condition.

The president said that because of the "tremendous pain and suffering he's now enduring. our country will perhaps become closer, more unified".

The source said investigators were not sure of the significance of the names and did not know if it was a list of people Hodgkinson was targeting.

Scalise, 51, sustained injuries to internal organs, broken bones and severe bleeding after being shot in his left hip early on Wednesday at a baseball field in a suburb of Washington.

Doctors say Scalise will be in the hospital for a "considerable period of time".

"I think that his risk of death right now is substantially lower than when he came in; he was as critical as you can be when he came in".

The Scalise family also said they greatly appreciate the outpouring of thoughts and prayers for the wounded congressman.

Two Capitol police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, as well as House Republican aide Zack Barth were injured, but have been released from hospital. Griner remained hospitalized at MedStar Hospital after getting shot in the ankle, and Sava described her in good condition.
