MedStar Washington Hospital Center released a statement Wednesday night at 8:15 pm saying congressman Steve Scalise is in "critical condition" and "requires additional operations."

Here's the statement from their website:
Congressman Steve Scalise sustained a single rifle shot to the left hip. The bullet travelled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding. He was transported in shock to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, a Level I Trauma Center. He underwent immediate surgery, and an additional procedure to stop bleeding. He has received multiple units of blood transfusion. His condition is critical, and he will require additional operations. We will provide periodic updates.
President Trump said Scalise "is in very tough shape."



CNN has more:
Trump made a surprise visit to MedStar Washington Hospital Center around sunset Wednesday.

He sat next to Scalise's bed and spoke with the congressman's family, according to White House press secretary Sean Spicer. He also spoke with Griner and her wife, as well as hospital doctors.
A senior administration official said the mood inside the hospital was somber during Trump's visit, which came hours after Scalise emerged from surgery still in critical condition after suffering a single rifle shot to his hip.

[...]A congressional staffer, Zach Barth, was also shot in the leg and has since been released from the hospital. Matt Mika, a lobbyist for Tyson Foods and former congressional staffer, was also identified as one of those shot. He was out of surgery and in critical condition as of Wednesday afternoon, his family said in a statement.
