Steve Scalise was released from ICU, more than a week after shooting


House Majority Whip Steve Scalise is now out of the Intensive Care Unit, MedStar Washington’s Hospital Center confirmed Friday.

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

Scalise’s release from ICU comes more than a week after he was shot in the hip when a lone gunman opened fire at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.

The Louisiana congressman underwent several procedures and was upgraded to "fair condition" on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said he visited Scalise in the hospital, according to John Parkinson with ABC News.

Speaker Ryan said Scalise was talking more and "sends his regards and thanks" for thoughts and prayers. Tyson lobbyist Matt Mika was also released from ICU today, and listed in "good health." Like Scalise, Mika was once in critical condition.

On June 14, Scalise, Mika and three others were shot while practicing for a Congressional charity baseball game in Washington, DC. The other three people injured in the shooting, two Capitol Police officers and one Congressional staffer, have already been released from the hospital.
