WASHINGTON  (FOX 17/AP) — On Wednesday officials at Medstar Washington Hospital said  Congressman Steve Scalise has been readmitted to the intensive care unit.

In the latest progress report from the hospital,  Scalise is now listed in serious condition following new concerns over an infection.

As earlier reported in the Associated Press, Scalise, the House majority whip, was one of five people shot when a gunman opened fire Wednesday as the Republican team practiced in Alexandria, Virginia. He has required surgery several times since the shooting.
