Rep. Steve Scalise's Condition Upgraded To 'Fair' After Baseball Field Shooting

MedStar Washington Hospital Center made the announcement on Tuesday, almost a week after a gunman opened fire on Scalise and his Republican colleagues at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.

The Medstar Washington Hospital Center did not provide further details.

The update Wednesday also said Scalise is "beginning an extended period of healing and rehabilitation".

CNN reports when the Louisiana Republican arrived at the hospital after the shooting last week, he was categorized in critical condition.

Scalise underwent several surgeries after a single shot went through his left hip and "traveled straight across toward the other hip, in what we call a transpelvic gunshot wound", the hospital said on Friday.

Doctors previously said Scalise's condition "was as critical as you can be when he came in". The shooter, 66-year-old James Hodgkinson, acted alone and had a list of six congressmen in his pocket.
