Rep. Steve Scalise was among those who were injured after a gunman opened fire at Eugene Simpson Field where the Republican party's baseball team was having an early morning practice on June 14. Earlier reports cited about 50 to 60 people were at the venue when the shooting took place.

The representative for Louisiana reportedly sustained a gunshot wound in the hip before the authorities killed the suspect identified as James T. Hodgkinson in a shootout. The assailant was allegedly a critic of Donald Trump and the Republican Party. His social media posts suggested that he campaigned for Sen. Bernie Sanders during the 2016 presidential election.

Update on Scalise's condition

Three weeks after the Alexandria shooting, the congressman was moved back to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) after suffering from a serious infection on his wound. The readmission came after Scalise had undergone a series of surgeries to repair damaged internal organs and bones caused by the gunshot wound.

An affiliate of MedStar Washington Hospital Center said the GOP member is currently in "serious" condition and promised to give further details on Thursday. "Congressman Steve Scalise has been readmitted to the Intensive Care Unit due to new concerns for infection. His condition is listed serious," the hospital stated.

In fact, he was the most seriously injured among those who were hurt.

His medical team said Scalise was admitted to the hospital "with an imminent risk of death" but showed signs of improvement after his surgeries. The congressman, however, will need long-term rehabilitation until he can fully recover from his injury.

On June 22, the GOP lawmaker was moved out of the ICU after his doctors saw good progress on his condition. "He remains in fair condition as he continues an extended period of healing and rehabilitation,” MedStar Washington Hospital Center said in a statement.
