Six people were injured during the attack, including two congressmen, a congressional aide, a lobbyist and two police officers. Scalise arrived at the hospital in a critical state, facing "an imminent risk of death", Sava said.
Indonesia's Lion Mentari Airlines PT is studying an order for at least 20 planes and perhaps as many as 50 from a combination of commitments and conversions of existing orders for smaller 737 Max jets, the people said.
The Max 10, which will be Boeing's first new model since the unveiling of the 777X series at the Dubai Air Show in 2013, will be 5 1/2 feet (1.68 meters) longer than the Max 9, now the biggest member of the re-engined 737 family, which was launched alongside the Max 7 and 8 in 2011. Boeing will also show its 737 Max 9 and Airbus will show the single-aisle A321, popular for its fuel efficiency.
A handful of airlines were said to be shopping for planes in advance of the show including Peruvian low-priced startup Viva Air, owned by Irelandia Aviation led by the son of Ryanair founder Tony Ryan, which could place an order for Airbus.
In order to carry the extra payload, the Max 10 will be equipped with larger, higher-thrust engines.

"Simply put, the 737 MAX 10X would be the most profitable single-aisle airplane the industry has ever seen", he wrote in a blog entry. Airbus says its tweaked design will add a further 80 seats to the world's largest passenger plane.
The planemaker predicts the need for 35,000 new planes worth $5.3 trillion over the next two decades, an increase from last year's estimates.
The star of the show will likely be the cutting-edge F-35 stealth jet fighter.
