Rep. Steve Scalise readmitted to ICU over infection fears

Doctors on Wednesday readmitted Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) to MedStar Washington's intensive care unit over concerns he may be susceptible to infection, officials said.

Scalise was shot in the hip June 14 when a gunman opened fire at a field in Alexandria, Virginia, as Republicans practiced for the Congressional Baseball Game. After the shooting, Scalise underwent several surgeries and was in the ICU for nine days. He is listed as being in serious condition. The hospital said it will give an update on Scalise on Thursday.
