Steve Scalise is back in intensive care 'due to new concerns for infection'


House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), wounded last month in a shooting at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, was readmitted to the intensive care unit Wednesday at MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

Scalise is back in the hospital "due to new concerns for infection," according to the hospital. He is listed in serious condition.

Scalise was shot in the hip on June 14 by gunman James Hodgkinson, who fired 60 rounds at Republicans practicing for the Congressional Baseball Game before he was fatally shot by police. Scalise was one of five people taken to hospitals after the shooting.

Scalise underwent several surgeries at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, and his condition steadily improved. He was released from the hospital nine days after the shooting.

Well-wishers offered prayers for Scalise and his family.

The hospital said it would update Scalise's condition on Thursday.
