Wounded Rep. Steve Scalise out of intensive care

Posted June 27, 2017

House majority whip Steve Scalise, who was shot while practicing baseball last week, is no longer being held in the intensive care unit at the hospital where he is being treated. Scalise was near death when he arrived at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, doctors said. A hospital news release said Scalise "continues an extended period of healing and rehabilitation".

More on this as it develops.

Scalise took a single gunshot to his hip, which tore through bones and internal organs, leaving him in critical condition. The shooting was allegedly carried out by James T. Hodgkinson, who was later killed by police.
