AP: Scalise out of intensive care unit

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) is out of the intensive care unit at MedStar Washington Hospital Center but remains in serious condition, according to the Associated Press.

The Associated Press, naming an unidentified source, published its report Wednesday saying the Louisiana congressman was moved out of the ICU. The congressman was readmitted into the ICU on the evening of July 6 due to an infection.

Dr. Jack Sava, director of trauma at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, said previously that Scalise was originally “in critical condition with an imminent risk of death” when he first arrived at the hospital.

Scalise and four other people were injured June 14 while practicing for the annual Congressional baseball game — one injured their ankle and four were hit by the gunman. The man who opened fire was shot and killed on the scene by security detail who were already at the field.
